Divorcing During COVID-19

A divorce is often one of the most emotionally difficult periods in life. In this time of COVID-19, it is even more problematic for many people. If you are doing through a divorce, staying closely connected, and talking to your divorce attorney throughout the process helps to understand what is happening with your case.

Choosing divorce lawyers who provide information on the process, options for speeding up the divorce process, and what to expect through the courts is always the first step. Working with local divorce lawyers in Denton is helpful as these attorneys have experience with the courts and the timeline for cases.

The most important factor any divorce lawyers will talk to clients about is a realistic timeline. Family courts are not likely to be open for regular hearings, or something close to a regular docket, until sometime in May or later, depending on the opening of government and business.

This means a considerable backlog of cases canceled that were already scheduled. These cases have to be heard before new cases are scheduled, and this timeline is uncertain until the courts are back up and running on a regular workday.

To help deal with stress and uncertainty in these difficult times, divorce lawyers recommend the following strategies you can implement in your life:

  • Focus on yourself – make sure you are taking care of yourself and your children. Eat healthy food, exercise daily, reach out and talk to friends and family via phone, social media, or video platforms.
  • Avoid the “what ifs” – constantly reviewing what may happen or what is out of your control, such as when the Denton family court will open up, is wasted energy. It is also likely to increase your stress levels and make it more difficult to make important decisions.
  • Talk to professionals – while a time-out in your divorce is not what you wanted, it may be helpful. This is a time to contact your accountant, financial planner, divorce lawyer, or other professionals to get the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your children.

If you need assistance with your children or if you are feeling overwhelmed, this can also be a time to reach out to a counselor or therapist to help manage stress, loss, and dealing with the divorce. For assistance with your divorce in these difficult times, talk to the divorce lawyers at Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson, LLP.
