In the fourth episode of the domestic litigation firm Cordell & Cordell’s ongoing webinar series on divorce during COVID-19, a panel of divorce attorneys across the United States discuss the five biggest mistakes men make when facing divorce during the pandemic and how to avoid them.
Cordell & Cordell CEO/Managing Partner Scott Trout talked with a panel of six Cordell & Cordell divorce lawyers who gave tips and strategies for men and fathers going through divorce during this difficult time.
Cordell & Cordell has hosted numerous webinars and seminars through the years based on Co-Founder and Principal Partner Joe Cordell’s book “The 10 Stupidest Mistakes Men Make During Divorce (And How to Avoid Them).” During the Coronavirus pandemic, those mistakes can be magnified as the divorce process is further complicated by quarantine and stay-at-home orders. More than ever, men and fathers facing divorce are finding themselves in vulnerable situations.
“Coronavirus has given parents, if there’s not a current order, this ability to deny parenting time,” said Cordell & Cordell Regional Managing Attorney Doug Anderson, who is a divorced father of four, “and if they deny parenting time and you’re losing parenting time from when you move out to whenever you get to present your case in a hearing, that could go very negatively on your side.
Cordell & Cordell is committed to providing men and fathers the resources they need to make informed decisions to help protect their rights during this uncertain time. In addition to hosting free weekly webinars, Cordell & Cordell is producing daily podcasts answering submitted questions about divorce during COVID-19. You can find all past webinars and podcast episodes on the Cordell & Cordell COVID-19 and Divorce Information Hub.
Should you be facing a divorce or family law issue during this time, it is vital to get in touch with a divorce attorney as soon as possible. As an added safety and convenience measure, Cordell & Cordell is offering virtual and phone consultations in all offices.
