Coronavirus Impact and Assurance: Yes! We are still open for business!

For the last year, thanks to the hard work of all of our staff, and you, our clients, no one who works at this office has gotten Covid while working here, and we have not spread a single case to any of our clients, while getting all of our client's legal needs taken care of. With the spread of vaccination the end is in sight, normal times where we can meet our clients in person in the office are just around the corner.

During the transition we will be having some in person, in office appointments for clients who have already been vaccinated, and for whom the CDC recommended period of time has passed since their last shot. Of course, for anyone who would prefer a phone or video appointment for safety, convenience, or any other reason those types of appointments are always available.

The weather is warming up and outdoor-in person appointments are now available. The updated CDC guidelines indicate that masks are not needed for vaccinated people outside if not in close quarters; although as a precaution we will continue to practice social distancing. If you have not had your vaccination, masks will continue to be a requirement.

Through the transition safety of all staff and clients will continue to be our top priority, we look forward to seeing you soon.

How can you maintain your mental health during your divorce?

| May 8, 2019 | Uncategorized

It’s no secret that divorce can take a toll on you. The constant fighting and changing your entire lifestyle as you become single again may leave you drained.If you take care of yourself right now, you will be setting yourself up for a better start at the end of the divorce process.


You don’t have to go it alone

It may feel like you have to handle your entire divorce by yourself, since it is between you and your spouse. But there are people who can help. Reach out to your friends and family and let them know that you need support.

If you don’t think that the people close to you will understand, there are support groups that can help as well. In these groups, are people who are going through—or have already gone through—the same thing as you. They may understand how you feel better than people who have never dealt with divorce.

Make some positive changes

You may need to sort out a new schedule with your children, a new place to live or even a new job if you were a stay-at-home parent before. All these shifts can be overwhelming—but you can also make fun changes too. Some ways to refresh your life during or after your divorce are to:

  • Start going to the gym
  • Change something in your home—such as furniture or paint colors
  • Take up a new hobby
  • Go on a vacation

You are allowed to take care of yourself too as you figure out your new lifestyle. Whether the changes you make are temporary or permanent, they can help you remember that life goes on after your divorce.

Your divorce will most likely be challenging no matter what—but you can lay the foundation of good mental health right now. If you take better care of yourself now, you could improve your post-divorce life as well.
