Unique Family Law Issues Arising From the COVID-19 Pandemic

The new coronavirus has hit our country hard. One group of people particularly impacted by COVID-19 are divorced co-parents and others who are now seeking a divorce. Please continue reading to learn more about some of the most prevalent divorce and family law issues in the wake of COVID-19 and how our firm can help you.

  • Initiating the divorce process: Getting a divorce is not a split-second decision, especially in these uncertain times, however, there are many cases where a divorce simply cannot wait. If you believe you are truly ready to begin the divorce process, we can help you, even amid the new coronavirus pandemic. If you are ready to start, you can give our compassionate attorneys a call today and we can help you through the process ahead.
  • Parenting time/child custody disagreements: Lately, we have found that divorced co-parents are having a particularly difficult time creating and modifying temporary child custody/parenting time orders. Though child custody is a complex issue as is, there isn’t a precedent set for how child custody will change amid a pandemic. However, if you are looking to modify your child custody terms to keep you and your children safe, you can always give our firm a call and we can mediate your terms to create an agreement that works for you both for the remainder of the duration of this pandemic.
  • Child support obligations: Unfortunately, one of the most bitter aspects of the coronavirus pandemic is that many people have either lost their jobs or were forced to temporarily close their small businesses to prevent the spread of the virus. If this has happened to you and you are someone who pays regular child support, you may now find yourself in dire straights. Fortunately, by calling us, we may be able to help you draft an application to modify your support obligation for the foreseeable future.
