Back to the “New” Normal
The pandemic isn’t over, and we all need to remain vigilant, especially with those high risk people, but Courts have, for the most part, reopened for hearings.
However, your court hearing may take place via videoconferencing, pretrials are being held by phone, Courts are trying to minimize contact. Each Court has a different set of rules and procedures, but reaching an agreement without having to litigate an issue is more important than ever.
Family law, divorce, dissolutions and custody issues, are always very personal and emotional, especially for children. At Maciorowski Law, we always advise you on not just the financial cost, but the emotional cost of legal action.
We remain open for new client appointments and we will work to your comfort level. We can schedule appointments by Zoom, Skype or FaceTime, but if you want to come into the office, we have take appropriate precautions so our clients can feel safe.
Please call to schedule.
Essential Legal Services – We Are Open
Unfortunately, the Stay-At-Home Order has exacerbated family tension and put a strain on existing parenting time orders. These issues can sometimes be resolved with a letter, but Court action is often necessary.
The Court’s remain open, as does our office. Like all businesses, we are making changes to accomodate the need for physical distancing. We have appointments available by Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and telephone.
We are still scheduling in person consultations and using all recommended precautions.
Let us know your comfort level and we will make the appropriate arrangements.

Like everyone, our office is concerned with the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus. We are taking all recommended precautions, but wanted to share some information.
To date, all courthouses are open and continuing operation. To our clients, if you have an upcoming hearing and believe there may be an issue attending, call us as soon as possible.
