The State of Family Law During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Presented by JAMS Chicago

Webinar CLE Credit: 1 IL MCLE Credit

During this unprecedented time in our history, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing additional stress on Chicagoland families navigating divorce/dissolution proceedings. What happens when you can’t get into court?  This webinar will center around a practical discussion of challenges created by the Illinois “stay at home” order. Still eager for solutions and settlements, many family law practitioners and mediators have turned to technology.  Our panelists will share tips on how to mediate these emotional matters successfully via video- and teleconference.

Featured Topics

  • Court closures and the effects on divorce/dissolution timelines
  • Co-parenting and custody issues families are facing during the “stay at home” order
  • Effectively mediating a family law matter via video conference
