Remote and Virtual Meetings with Your Wheaton Divorce Attorney


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.
