Mediating lawyers are continuing to help couples resolve their issues surrounding divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support and property division.
Mediators are helping with the paperwork needed to complete divorces and they're conducting mediation sessions through video conferencing. There's no need to wait for courts to re-open or to file more declarations, Requests for Orders and motions. Couples can decide what happens to their kids and money instead of the judge. And they can do this without leaving home.
