COVID – 19 PRECAUTIONS
The health and safety of our clients, staff and their families in these uncertain times is our paramount concern.
We’re not changing what we do, just the way we do it.
We shall endeavour to provide as high a level of service as is possible in the circumstances but:

Face to face meetings will be held only if essential (and if permitted by government rules). All client conferences will be conducted by telephone or electronic means;
For Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Appointments of Enduring Guardian, instructions will be received and advice given by telephone and/or e-mail;
Wills will be prepared and sent by e-mail to the client for printing with instructions for signing;
Enduring Powers of Attorney and Appointments of Enduring Guardian require to be witnessed by a lawyer. However, we anticipate that statutory measures will be introduced to accommodate the execution of these and similar documents and if this happens, we shall update this advice. Otherwise, these documents can be signed when the current crisis has passed.
If you have a current court matter, your lawyer will advise you as to the current procedures being adopted by the court during the crisis.

We all hope to avoid a Family Law experience but sadly, for about 50% of us, this will be a reality.

 

By its nature, separation or divorce involves a degree of emotional turmoil as parties come to terms with the end of a relationship, whether caused by a betrayal of trust or simply having grown apart.

 

Viewed in another light, it can also herald a new beginning – a chance to explore new challenges or a new direction in life.
