As COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus) continues to run rampant across the U.S. (and the globe), couples have suddenly found themselves spending much more time together while confined in close quarters. While for some this time is bringing them closer, for others it may be bringing about marital issues that could lead to divorce. These marital issues are amplified by dealing with the stress and anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s no surprise that relationships are feeling the strain. So, what happens if you’re considering divorce during the pandemic?
You do not need to wait to speak with an attorney, even during the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic. In fact, despite the shelter in place order, Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis, PLLC is still meeting with clients virtually, by phone or by video conferencing (such as Zoom). Our law firm was recently quoted in the Washingtonian stating “The divorce process can be emotional and time consuming, and if you wait for weeks or months to begin, that could take an additional toll on you and your family.” Consider documenting any issues that occur with your spouse now, providing as much detail as you can, if you’re considering divorce.
