(Mass Appeal) – Just like everything else, the impact of the coronavirus is even effecting couples in the midst of divorce proceedings. We spoke with attorney and author Gabrielle Hartley about what this means for people.

According to Hartley, it is still possible to file for divorce even though the courts are closed.

Hartley added that many attorneys are taking advantage of technology and having teleconferences with clients rather than face to face meetings. If you are stuck sharing a space with your spouse during this quarantine time, take the time to respond, rather than react, to your soon-to-be ex.
