Our courts have announced reduced operations through March 27, 2020 due to COVID-19, which could last well beyond that time, and there could be even further delays once courts reopen to a logjam of old and new cases. However, during the COVID-19 outbreak, the staff at GMR remains diligently working with each and every one of our clients, and we are always available electronically, and via telephone or video conference if requested.

We are also accepting new clients during COVID-19. During these difficult times, a lot can still be accomplished with respect to your divorce. The divorce process can be initiated and filed, as courts remain open for that purpose. The Connecticut General Statutes impose a 90 day waiting period from the time of the filing of the divorce to the completion of your divorce in court anyhow. During that time, and amid COVID-19, we will work with our clients to draft initial pleadings, gather and review financial document such as retirement statements and tax returns, develop personalized strategy unique to your needs, negotiate with the other side on temporary agreements and settlement proposals, and further move the case along appropriately based on each individual situation.

There is even an option to have temporary agreements approved by a Judge regarding custody, visitation, alimony, child support, and financial matters, without physically appearing in court. Please consult with an attorney at GMR regarding your unique situation and legal options during COVID-19. We wish you and your family health and safety.
