There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people’s lives all over the world. Local government officials issued stay-at-home orders in an effort to slow the spread of the highly contagious virus. In addition, non-essential businesses were closed temporarily, while other companies allowed employees to work remotely from home. Despite these restrictions, individuals may still have important legal issues that need attention. Attorneys are considered essential, and although law firms have remained open the last six months, they had to alter the way they do business. In order to adhere to health and safety guidelines, law practices across the United States are now using technology like never before to meet their clients’ needs. Whether a couple is considering a divorce or creating their estate plan, they may be able to complete them virtually with the help of a skilled Elite Lawyer.    

Digital Options for Addressing Legal Matters

A law firm’s Web presence is more important now than ever before since those who need legal help are likely starting their search on the Internet. With social distancing still in effect in many states, attorneys are now utilizing digital technology to stay connected with their clients. Online scheduling platforms like Calendly and similar programs allow potential clients to make appointments or arrange initial consultations to discuss their cases. Being listed in a reputable legal directory such as Elite Lawyer can also be a tremendous benefit to enhance a firm’s reputation.

While some courts have opened back up recently, many may still be closed. In response to the closures, certain legal proceedings are now being conducted online. A virtual divorce can be completed online through teleconferencing or video conferencing. This allows couples to legally end their marriage without leaving their homes, which can save them time and money in traveling to and from the court building. For example, in Illinois, the process may begin by filing a petition for dissolution of marriage online. Many people are embracing new technology such as Zoom, FaceTime, or Google Meets instead of meeting in-person to resolve issues such as parenting time or the division of property and assets. In many high-conflict divorce cases, a couple cannot even stand to be in the same room, so resolving issues virtually can make for a less contentious process.
