Due to a potential surge in monetary issues relating to COVID-19, Bais Din Maysharim and Bais HaVaad of Lakewood have cooperated with dayanim in America and Eretz Yisroel to assist those seeking guidance on these matters. Due to the complexity of the matters at hand, this work will not be completed before Pesach.
In the interim, they have presented to Matzav.com the following limited guidelines, to assist moros and parents in how to proceed.
This document should not be considered a ruling for any party but rather serves as general guidance which the parties are recommended to follow if they would like to settle the issue without having their case adjudicated in a formal din torah.
May Hashem save us from this Mageifa and bring Refuah, Nechama and Parnasah to all who need it.
