One moment...we are preparing something epic for you.

Response to COVID-19

To Our Current & Prospective Clients:

 

While our physical office is closed due to State orders, we understand the stress of unresolved divorce, and we are here for you during this unprecedented time. As a result of office closures, economic uncertainty, and court delays, we have implemented the following agile procedures: ​
• Conducting free initial consultations over Zoom or telephone​
• Reversing our fee increase, and lowering prices to 2019 rates​
• Increasing discounts available (please ask!)​
• Providing mediation sessions over Zoom ​
• For clients preferring in-person mediation, we may be able to make arrangements to travel to your home, waiving our travel charge​
• Creating new online tools allowing for more productive mediation preparation ​
• For prior clients needing changes to your court orders, a streamlined process and lower price ​
We seek to provide the most affordable, efficient full-service mediation option. Due to court closures, you may find that document filings are impacted. We may be unable to file paperwork, or it may be delayed in its return. Court closures and policies are fluid during this unprecedented time. We remain committed to work closely with you, sharing information as we receive it. We understand that divorce is, on its own, a stressful event. We are grateful for your understanding as we push forward to healthy, positive, and productive cooperative resolutions for our valued clients. Remember, no matter how long it takes to get documents signed by the court, our mediation process will always be faster and more affordable than litigation. ​
If you wish to schedule an appointment for a mediation session, free follow-up session, or initial consultation, please (insert link) book here. As always, if you find no suitable appointments, you are invited to contact Erika with your specific requests, by texting 916-790-5500. Thank you! ​
 

To Families Impacted By Court Closures:

 

Are you involved in a family law matter that has been impacted by court closures? ​
Divorceably is extending free and affordable help. ​
At Divorceably, we believe in your right to resolve your divorce quickly, efficiently, and on your own terms. For people in court, the difficulties of divorce are amplified – you can’t control the cost, outcome, or timelines. With recent court closures impeding your ability to complete your divorce, we’d like to help alleviate your stress. Temporarily, we are expanding our practice to provide these services to people impacted by court closures: ​
• If you and your spouse have an order for child custody or support, but need to change it due to impacts of Coronavirus (i.e., job loss or change to parenting schedule): ​
 — If you have an agreement, we will format and file it on a sliding scale from free to $150​
–If you need help reaching an agreement, we will provide a one hour online mediation session, plus format and file your updated court order, on a sliding scale from $350 to $750​
• If you and your spouse have a hearing date for child support, spousal support, or custody, and your hearing has been continued by the court:​
— If you have an agreement, we will format and file it on a sliding scale from free to $150​
– If you need help reaching an agreement, we will provide a one hour online mediation session, plus format and file your updated court order, on a sliding scale from $350 to $500 (for one issue) (or, for two issues, a two hour session at a rate of $500 to $750) ​
• If you and your spouse have a Mandatory Settlement Conference that has been continued, we will provide a two-hour mediated settlement conference, plus preparation and written follow up, on a sliding scale from $500 to $750 ​
• If you and your spouse reach a full or partial agreement at your mediation session, we will draft, format and file your Judgment and Martial Settlement Agreement on a sliding scale from $750 to $2150​
At Divorceably, we typically work with people exclusively out of court. While we are extending our services to the community during this unprecedented time, this does not mean that mediation will work for you. To learn more and get started, please:​

– send the quiz to the other person involved ​
– schedule a telephone consultation with highly trained mediator Erika Englund by CLICKING HERE and selecting “Free consultation for couples in court disputes”​
We cannot accept every client, and make no guarantees of outcome. If you need legal advice, you should contact an attorney. We will do our best to screen appropriate candidates for mediation, but ultimately you are responsible for creating an agreement. You should consider mediation only if you feel that the other person is honest and open, and if there is no history in your relationship of abuse or power imbalances. ​
