“We know how difficult divorce can be.”
We prominently note that truism on our family law website at the proven Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh in Somerville. No reasonable person underestimates the challenges that divorce can entail even in the best of times.
Candidly, these are not the best of times.
The byword of the moment across the United States and internationally is of course “coronavirus.” So-called COVID-19 has turned life upside down for much of the global population, including virtually all Americans.
The repercussions span broad dimensions. Income stability is a concern for many. Uncertainty regarding the future gnaws. Individuals and families are “sheltering in place.”
What are the implications of COVID-19 for divorcing parties?
That question posed above does not come with a default answer applicable to every situation. The transformed reality that coronavirus has created unquestionably flips things upside down for many people involved in the divorce process and other family law matters. Some of those individuals will change their plans.
That scenario is not preordained in every case, though. Life sometimes goes on as contemplated even under materially adjusted circumstances.
Can individuals continue to move ahead with their divorce plans?
We underscore on our website the fine line now existing for our experienced legal team as we seek to promote public health and continue providing our valued clients with seamless advocacy in their important matters.
Our law firm acknowledges necessary changes, and we have made them in a way that we believe will enable many clients to continue with their current dissolution plans and schedules. Among other things, we continue to provide ready access via telephone and video conferencing. Moreover, it is possible to deal with key documents electronically.
We welcome contacts to the firm to answer questions and provide further information during this challenging time. Our legal team will do all it can to continue promoting the best interests and expectations of all the firm’s clients. We share everyone’s hope that we will soon turn the corner on this viral nemesis.
