Courts Are Partially Open: All documents can be filed. Hearings/trials are occurring mostly via livestream video. Custody mediations occur via telephone or livestream video. There are challenges in this current landscape but nothing we have not mastered. Depositions occur via livestream video. Live court appearances only happen in certain settings; domestic violence or judicial settlement conferences.
Client Meetings: The level of satisfaction with our “Covid” meeting protocols continue to be outstanding. Meetings and communications continue to be customized per client need.
Custody and Covid: Each County has specific, temporary rules on when you should leave your home including for vacation. If you have custody orders advance discuss any travel plans with your attorney.
When Support Orders Begin: In general child and spousal support begins to flow on the date the formal request to the court was made or filed. So it is vital to get the court request submitted as soon as the need to receive, or change, a support order materializes.
Initial Consultations: We have put additional resources to meet the surge in demand for our services. As a result, many consultations are occurring upon contact.
