If you are considering filing for divorce, you may currently be searching for a virtual lawyer. While the stay at home orders may prevent you from getting out and about, they do not put a pause on your legal needs. At Scroggins Law Group, PLLC we are set up technologically to meet with clients in a virtual environment during this unprecedented time of sheltering in place and staying at home. We are fully open and implementing innovative ways to meet all your legal needs through various online platforms. The current orders and guidelines related to COVID-19 do not stop the progress of your legal matters.
Scroggins Law Group, PLLC made sure to invest early on in technology. Well before COVID-19 and the stay at home orders were issued our attorneys used various online platforms to work together seamlessly between the Frisco and Dallas office locations and when communicating with clients. Since the shelter in place orders and social distancing rules have been implemented, we have added additional online applications to our virtual toolbox. Our attorneys are well versed and highly skilled at using both Zoom and Microsoft Teams, which are the applications the courts in the surrounding counties are currently using to conduct hearings.
We want you to feel both safe and comfortable, while still having your legal needs met. We are currently offering our initial consultations online through Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, FaceTime or in person so that you can stay at home, if necessary and still have the opportunity to talk to a lawyer ?face to face?. Both Mark Scroggins and John Withers, Jr. are family law specialists, being board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. All of our attorneys are heavily experienced in family law and video conferencing applications. They will be happy to consult with you regarding your legal matters and answer any questions you may have.
As always, we are here to help you with your divorce and child custody issues. The attorneys at Scroggins Law Group, PLLC will walk you through your divorce and guide you through any decisions you have to make regarding the division of marital assets and property, child custody, and any other issues specific to your case. For your safety and convenience, we offer telephone and virtual conferences in order to allow you to stay in close contact with your attorney despite social distancing rules.
While each divorce is unique, a divorce case typically begins when you file an Original Petition for Divorce. Even prior to COVID-19 this filing was done electronically with the courts through an e-file system. The ability to begin the process to file for divorce has not been affected by COVID-19 and the stay at home or shelter in place orders. We are here to help you get started once you have decided you want a divorce from your spouse. We can advise you on your rights as well as what you are entitled to and the best way to proceed.
Divorce, even under the most agreeable circumstances, is life-altering and overwhelming. It is important, especially during the extreme changes already happening as a result of COVID-19, to do what you can to minimize stress. We understand that there is no easy fix to the stressors and range of emotions you will experience during a divorce, but we are here to help you relive some of the stress and to help you take care of the legal issues that arise.
Contact Scroggins Law Group, PLLC today at 214-469-3100 for information about hiring a divorce lawyer who is not only willing and able to work with you virtually during these unprecedented times, but highly skilled at practicing family law.
