Even during emergencies like the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, courts must continue their operations—at least to some extent. In this section, you’ll learn how family law courts across the country are adapting to the COVID-19 crisis and whether you should finalize your divorce now or later. You can also learn how the pandemic is affecting marital asset values. Valuations depend on when, how, and under what constraints our economy will recover after the pandemic finally wanes; keep in mind that our economy’s stability and, thus, predictability drives marital property valuation in normal times.
And, of course, if you have questions, you should reach out to a local divorce attorney for advice. Family law attorneys are still available to clients via phone or virtual meeting services, even while the pandemic continues.
