COVID-19 Impact and Assurance

Due to COVID-19 (aka, Corona Virus) the entire court system, throughout the state of Alabama, has been shut down until at least until at least May 1, 2020. However, emergency child custody issues are still being addressed. Some judges are conducting a few hearings and entertaining attorney arguments remotely via conference call. Our office is open and we are answering our phone. We are providing legal services during normal business hours. We will continue doing initial consultations and providing legal help and advice to our clients.

We have instituted safe practices in the way we operate in an effort to both protect our clients and their families as well as keeping ourselves healthy so that we can remain available to assist our clients into the future.

Until further notice, we have stopped accepting walk-ins at the office. All meetings will be performed via telephone and remotely using the internet. We can still file motions and complaints and get the process started. We can also provide legal advice and counseling to both our clients and in initial consultations. We are fortunate that almost all of our services can be performed remotely.

We understand that family dynamics and family problems become more complicated and are often more intense during times of stress, like the one we are all living through right now. We want to remain available and able to assist families with the legal problems involving child custody and divorce.

We are in historic times and we have a unique opportunity to play our part in stopping a serious virus before it burns though our populations, killing many of our dearest family members and friends. What our society does now and how we each individually adjust our lives in fighting COVID-19 will be studied for generations. Let’s all be safe and live in a way that we can protect the health and safety of everyone.
