Covid-19 has changed our lives, in some ways, potentially forever.
It is changing the way we work, how we interact socially and it is impacting our relationships. For some, it is having an impact on divorce considerations and proceedings. Whether you are in the midst of divorce proceedings or whether the situation has caused you to consider divorce, you should know you don’t have to put your life on hold. There are steps you can continue to take or begin to take, to put you in a better position once the crisis passes. The Law Office of Lauren Cain is available now to help.
If You are Pursuing a Collaborative Divorce or Mediation
It is important to note that if you have already started divorce proceedings that involve mediation or a collaborative divorce, divorce professionals can continue to work on your case through video conferencing, phone calls, or other options. While pauses in the court system may slightly delay your resolution, it can still move forward. Stay in contact with your lawyer and in touch with what you can do to keep the process moving forward.
If Your Divorce Involves Litigation
If your case involves litigation, you are likely aware the courts have made accommodations due to COVID-19. Other than continuing to gather information and prepare your case, there is little that can be done to move forward. This is extremely unfortunate, especially if your case, like many, is acrimonious. A delay may feel unbearable. You can use this time to potentially re-examine the possibility of moving toward a collaborative divorce or mediation. Both sides may see value in being able to move forward in an out-of-court settlement in these exceptional times. It is certainly worth exploring.
