A Message to Clients from Jonathan D. Larose
To: All Clients From: Jonathan D. Larose Esq. MBA Date: May 28, 2020 Re: Vital Developments
Courts Are Open: If you live in Alameda county, court actions are in Hayward. If you live in Contra Costa county, court actions are in Martinez. Court hearings are being done by telephone and video-conferencing. Private mediations, and court settlement conferences, are being completed by video-conferencing.
Our Offices: We continue to serve all our clients from Livermore to Walnut Creek to Fremont, remotely. We have been using couriers when necessary. By “remotely” we mean the full use of email, telephone, fax, video conferencing including Skype and Zoom. We have a full compliment of process servers. We can get papers filed at court in real-time.
Impact of “Sheltering” on Divorce: Clients can file for divorce and continue to reside in the same residence where necessary. Remember – once the divorce action begins, a “freeze” attaches to all assets so that no one can transfer/diminish assets without advance agreement. This is an excellent way to quickly protect marital wealth if necessary.
Child and Spousal Support: Remember – the general rule is that a support order begins from the day you file papers at court asking for it. At this time the court is setting hearings quite some time out. It is important to get papers seeking support orders, or changing support orders, soon.
Timing May Be Everything: Like anything else in life, timing can be everything in family law. When you file for divorce, or when you separate, or when you deal with career issues – all impact divorce outcomes.
