The COVID-19 pandemic has brought life to a major slowdown if not a screeching halt.
If you contemplated divorce pre-pandemic, four weeks of sheltering in place with your mate may have convinced you divorce is inevitable.

We may not know when the court will reopen, but we can be sure it will take some additional time to set hearings and trials, delaying new cases for months. Litigation has always been costly financially and emotionally. Wouldn’t you rather have a means of resolving your conflicts and ending your marriage now, without unnecessary complications? Wouldn’t you like to get divorced without ruining your children’s lives?
If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, there a few things you can do now to get started.
