The recent Coronavirus, or Covid-19, pandemic is affecting many aspects of life in Connecticut. This includes matters related to family and divorce law. The courts in Connecticut currently remain open. However, there are some significant changes to operations due to the Coronavirus that may impact filing for divorce, parenting plans, and other family law matters.  The courts will only be addressing Priority 1 business matters at this time, which for family law means that the courts are only hearing relief from abuse and emergency custody matters.
The members of our firm are available to speak with you about any family law matters.  We also have an Alternative Dispute Resolution Department, led by Judge Thomas Colin (Ret.),  that can help to expedite the resolution of matters during this time when the courts are hearing only limited matters.   Contact us today and we will be happy to discuss further with you.
