Certified Family Law Specialist Fully Operating During the COVID-19 Pandemic
On March 19, 2020, California Governor, Gavin Newsome, issued a statewide stay-at-home order, which will remain in place until further notice.
At the Law Office of Joyce Holcomb, our firm has pivoted with the mandate to keep our staff, clients, and the public safe during this unprecedented health crisis by closing our office to the public and working remotely.
Our San Bernardino law firm remains fully operational during the state’s stay-at-home order, and available to current and new clients Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m.
As we each do our part to remain safe, our San Bernardino family law attorney is communicating with clients — and reviewing new cases — in each party’s preferred manner, including phone, text, email, or video conferencing via Zoom for ongoing cases and initial consultations.
At the Law Office of Joyce Holcomb, we understand that today’s challenges affect more than our California residents’ ability to go to work. This health crisis is far-reaching, impacting homes, personal lives, and families. We are available to help guide you through the difficulties of family law, even when we cannot meet in person.
Are Your Experiencing Marital and Family Challenges During the COVID-19 Pandemic?
Our statewide stay-at-home order has changed the way we all work and live, as our non-essential population has been placed in quarantine until we can ensure the safety of the general public going forward.
That means parents are working from home. Schools are closed, forcing children of all ages to learn from home. And even extended families are forging together to keep a watchful eye on each other.
As we traverse this difficult time together, there is a sense of solidarity among our California residents.
At home, however, things may be less than agreeable
Adjusting to the reality that everyone in your home must spend 24 hours a day together to ensure their safety is difficult for anyone.
As time goes on and plans to reopen the economy remain unclear, families are impacted by many troubling factors, including increases in domestic violence and — with fewer ways to hide phone calls, text messages, and emails — reports of infidelity.
Other families are struggling with upholding their child custody agreements while they try to balance each household’s safety while maintaining a relationship with their children.
Other spouses who were on the verge of filing for divorce before the pandemic changed our lives, may believe their options are now limited as we all face the adversity of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the Law Office of Joyce Holcomb, our San Bernardino County family law attorney understands how challenging life is right now and that it may be quite some time before we can resume “normal” activity.
However, that does not mean that you cannot seek family law solutions that will allow you to discuss personal difficulties that can bring peace of mind to your current and future circumstances. We are still here for you.
