The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic is making life difficult, here is what you can do to navigate your Divorce Mediation case
Seven Bay Area jurisdictions have issued a shelter in place order in an effort to stop the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and limit its impacts on our community. As divorce can be difficult even in the best of times, you may be feeling added anxiety and have questions regarding your case and how to proceed. As we all work together to support each other during this difficult and stressful time, your well-being is our priority. We have implemented some measures to ensure that we can still be here for you through each step of your case.
Here is some information to help you as you move forward:
- Divorce mediation is an option! Courthouses are currently closed in support of the Shelter in Place order and will remain closed until that order is lifted. If you have a scheduled court date during this time, you will be notified by mail of the postponement date. If you need a faster response and don’t want to wait for courts to reopen, you might want to consider divorce mediation as an alternative. We can work with you to reach an agreement that is best for all parties without the delays of the court system. Call or email us today for a consultation.
- We are here for you! If you have questions or concerns regarding your current case, or are a new client interested in a consultation, we are offering free video conference calls so that you can still meet with us face-to-face to discuss the details of your case. We can help you to set up a video conference from the comfort of your own home so you can continue to protect yourself and your family while we answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. We can also arrange for you to send us any sensitive documents via our secure online document management system.
- Our website has resources for all areas of family law, including adoption, child support, divorce and divorce mediation, estate planning, and more. We have recommendations for how to deal with your spouse during a divorce, handle custody proceedings, and settle on terms out of court. Feel free to browse these resources and give us a call with any questions.
As we navigate these new difficulties in our community, rest assured that we will do everything we can to ease your concerns and answer your questions.
