How has the coronavirus impacted you, the Courts, or working with lawyers?
The pandemic has caused a big shake-up in the Illinois courts. Processes and procedures went from a complete shutdown, to remote appearances, to some in-person/some not. Simply stated, filing for divorce can be more confusing than ever before.
But! In an interesting turn of events, you can still e-file documents and in some cases, you can go from beginning to end of your divorce lawsuit... and it all can be done remotely! That's right,many courts are allowing divorces to proceed remotely.
You do not have to stay married during this timeframe. You do not have to wait for the Courts to resume their normal procedures. And what is normal any way?
