What happens to my court case during the Covid-19 stay at home order?

April 8, 2020

I hope you and your family are doing well during this unique and temporary situation.


WE WILL get through this together, as long as we follow the social distancing rules, wash our hands frequently and avoid discretionary travel.


The world seems to have stopped but our family and other legal problems continue, not paying any attention to the stay in place orders. Lawyers are considered essential workers and I have been working without interruption throughout this crisis; available to assist with finding solutions to legal issues, especially during this challenging time.


Please listen to my pod-cast interview with Julie Kramer, as I discuss these questions: What is happening in the Courts; What do you do if your ex is not following parenting time; and How do you file new divorce proceedings?

The Courts, in an effort to keep personnel and the public safe, have limited their hours, closed certain Court houses, and have implemented temporary procedures, in the form of Standing Orders on current and future cases.
