These last several months have been like no other. As our country tackles the COVID-19 pandemic, we have learned about such things as social distancing, mask wearing, virtual school and many of us have worked from home for the first time in our careers. We have all had to adapt to new aspects of daily life, school and work. During this time, we have also had the chance to spend more time at home with our immediate families, put less miles on our car, and just slow down a bit. For many families, this has actually been very stressful. If you and your spouse have been considering a divorce, these last several months may have solidified your decision
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption in our daily lives. Many of us are working from home indefinitely, have children home completing school virtually and are asked to wear masks when we enter a place of business to slow the spread of the virus. For the last several months, time has seemed to slow down and it has been difficult to get routine tasks outside of the house completed. If you are in the process of a divorce or are beginning to think that’s where your marriage is headed, you may think that you have to put this on hold like so many other things right now. However, that is not the case.

However, even though the virus continues to spread in our community, our lives cannot simply stop until we have a vaccine. One extremely positive outcome of living through this unusual time is that our society has been forced to virtualize many different events and processes that cannot safely happen at the present time. We are working from home more, graduation celebrations and senior proms have been held virtually, and we have all gotten used to logging into Zoom
