Dealing with Family Law Matters During the COVID-19 Crisis

Though much of New Jersey has been put on hold in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like you to know that as per Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 107, we may remain, and are, still open for business. Our firm is more than happy to help you through various complex legal matters arising from the new coronavirus, including the following:

  • Beginning the divorce process: If you believe you are ready to begin the divorce process, we can help, even in the midst of the COVID-19 spread. By contacting our firm, you can have a free initial consultation via telephone or video conference. If you have any further questions relating to how the divorce process works in the wake of COVID-19, all you have to do is give our firm a call and we will steer you in the right direction.
  • Parenting time/child custody: This is one of the most complicated issues coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, you should note that your parenting time terms, under most circumstances, will remain unchanged. That being said, if you or your spouse is immuno-compromised, are at a high risk of contracting the virus, or another situation arises, we can help you negotiate parenting time terms via telephone mediation sessions that keep you and your family safe.
  • Child support obligations: If you are someone who has recently lost their job because of COVID-19, there is a very good chance you are now looking to modify the amount of child support you owe. Here at the Law Office of Sarina Gianna, LLC, we can help you draft an application to modify your support obligation. However, if you require child support and your spouse is refusing to pay, you may contact your probation officer to see if he/she can enforce the obligation without getting the courts involved.

We, of course, are living in unprecedented times. The new coronavirus has seemingly blindsided the nation, and if you are someone who has a pressing family law matter, you do not have to wait to take action. We are here. For any additional family or divorce law questions, simply call our compassionate firm today and we can get you started on your path to a fresh start.
