Jewish Times: Randy Kessler Notes Divorces Ramp Up
Apr 17, 2020
As the founder of a family law firm with 15 lawyers handling a significant amount of divorce, Randy Kessler is seeing his share of increased tension and concern and discusses how couples trapped at home could have increased discord.
Kessler noted, “I’ve already seen it start here and fielded calls from people whose home lives have deteriorated rapidly and significantly. We are bracing for and expecting a significant uptick in divorce filings and have arranged for our entire office to be able to work remotely.” Fortunately, in today’s legal system, most things can be done electronically and digitally and virtually. Courts are allowing virtual appearances, depositions can be taken telephonically, and cases and motions can be filed electronically without a personal trip to the courthouse.
