A Message from Us
The health and welfare of staff, clients, colleagues and their families are of primary importance as the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold. We are monitoring the latest information from federal, state and local officials and making operational decisions accordingly.
We Remain Open for Business
In addition to in-person meetings, we are able to consult with clients and colleagues through web-based video conference services, as well as by phone, email or text message. Much of this is actually business as usual for us. We have always communicated with clients by phone, email or text message when possible for the client’s convenience and to minimize fees. When meetings are necessary, they can be conducted by video conference.
Divorce is Possible during COVID-19
You are probably hearing that courts are backlogged and cases are not moving forward. This is true, since “non-essential” matters are being postponed to protect the health of the courthouse employees. Because we assist our clients with their legal matters using Collaborative Divorce and other out of court amicable settlement methods, court backlogs do not affect them. In these processes, all decisions about the couple’s finances and children are made without involving the judge or going to court. If you and your spouse are committed to sharing information and working together to make joint, personalized decisions for your family, there is no reason you cannot divorce during COVID-19.
We Are Here to Help You
If you are considering a divorce or other family law matter, do not hesitate to call, email or text us. We can arrange an appointment that is convenient for you to talk via phone or video conference about your case.
