Dear clients and prospective clients,
COVID-19 has changed our lives dramatically in just a short period of time. Over the last few days, we have seen tighter local restrictions on businesses and CDC recommendations that call for social distancing in order to save lives. Out of concern for our employees and clients, we have been completing all meetings online or by phone as of March 20, 2020. We are reaching out to all clients who were scheduled to meet last week and those who are scheduled over the next two weeks, to coordinate or re-schedule.
Because we are a tech-forward professional practice, we have full capability to complete all aspects of your mediation session remotely and seamlessly. All legal documents, including formal agreements and court pleadings, can be completed and signed without having to meet in person. The vast majority of our clients welcome this convenient option for being able to move forward with their desired arrangements safely and securely, without exposing themselves and their families to the ongoing pandemic. We are monitoring this situation daily.
Over the next few weeks, divorcing and separating couples will be under immense stress while encountering unforeseen scenarios. There may be potential co-parenting issues that might arise from social distancing or quarantines. You may be wondering about how the steep market losses will impact your settlement agreement. You might also be concerned how current work restrictions and reduced incomes will affect your cash flow and support arrangements. We encourage clients to reach out to us. My cell phone number is (973) 769-1300. We are here for you and can schedule a single session to help resolve these crucial issues.
Above all, we hope you and your families remain safe and healthy. Make sure to take a moment to breathe and to see the good in each day and in each other. We will get through this together.
