Should I File for Divorce Now or Wait?
Filing for divorce can be tricky at the best of times. Filing for divorce in the middle of a pandemic or in the aftermath of a pandemic is undeniably more challenging. For example, the practical matter of securing housing during an era of social distancing can be tough. Additionally, having minor children move between two households instead of remaining in one place may expose them to more risk than is reasonable. With that said, if there is abuse in the marriage or a real need (for any reason) to move the process along, an Arlington, Virginia coronavirus divorce lawyer can help you to meet that need.
The decision to file for divorce now or to wait until the pandemic becomes more controlled must be made based on individual circumstances. Are you in a position to remain physically and emotionally safe in your marriage until the situation abates? Will altering your children’s situation now cause them greater benefits or harm? Do you and/or your spouse have somewhere else to live while you’re working the details of your divorce out? You don’t need to know the answer to all of these questions right now. But it is a good idea to start thinking about your answers as you prepare for a consultation with our Arlington, Virginia coronavirus divorce lawyer team.
