Divorcing During a Pandemic

How do you get divorced during a pandemic? When the courts are closed or operating on a limited basis, what are your options?

The coronavirus pandemic has made ending a marriage through litigation even less appealing and more challenging. In most instances, hearings are telephonic, sometimes with video, and in-person hearings are prioritized for urgent or emergency situations. As a result, litigated cases are now taking much longer to resolve. The growing backlog will mean significant divorce litigation delays for the foreseeable future.

What are your options?

There are several ways you can get divorced — or make significant progress on a complex separation or divorce agreement — outside of the court system.

Questions?

If you have questions about any of these options — and discussing next steps — feel free to contact us. [4]
