We are committed to meeting our clients face to face to work on their divorce or parenting goals. While in-person meetings are often preferred, there are times when clients need to meet with us remotely or via video conferencing. To accommodate our clients and to ensure a continuity of family law services when we are unable to meet in-person, we rely on video conferencing software.
If the need arises for a remote meeting, our firm prefers to use Zoom for the following:
- remote intake meetings,
- client meetings with our Divorce Attorney,
- client meetings with our Divorce Financial Analyst,
- divorce or parenting mediation,
- collaborative divorce settlement conferences;
- preparation for upcoming court appearances in jurisdictions that rely on Zoom.
If you have never used Zoom, don't worry, it is as easy as using a phone to dial-in or clicking a few buttons from our emailed invitation to join a meeting. Below we have included several pictures to guide you through the process of joining our firm for a Zoom meeting or mediation session. We can also schedule a 15 minute telephone conference prior to any Zoom meeting to make sure you are all set and ready for our remote meeting.
