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.

The first day of school is exciting, and stressful even in normal times.  Now, in addition to worrying about new teachers and friends, parents have to also be concerned about keeping their kids and families safe from infection.  A new challenge, what do you do when you do not live with your child’s other parent, and the other parent is not doing what they need to keep your child safe.  The law does allow for parenting time, or custody to be changed if the actions of a parent endangers a child.  It is clear that the pandemic, which has killed almost 200 thousand Americans, is a serious threat.  If the other parent is not doing their best to keep your child safe at school, making sure that they follow school rules for safety and hygiene, wear their mask as directed at school, avoid situations outside of school with a high risk of exposure, you have a good argument to change custody or restrict their parenting time.  It is best for parents to work together to keep their kids safe, but, if the other parent is not doing their part, do not be shy about involving the Court to make it happen.
