Are You Considering a Divorce During COVID-19 in Louisville?

Are you considering a divorce during COVID-19 in Louisville and the resulting impact the pandemic has had upon your life and marriage?

First of all, know that you are not alone.  Unfortunately, the number of divorce filings around the world have measurably increased as a result of the Coronavirus.  That’s true in China, Europe, the US and here in Kentucky.

Many of our clients have expressed concerns while considering a divorce during 19 in Louisville.  It’s hard enough to protect a single household under these circumstances.  What will it be like with two separate households?

The stresses of life in the pandemic have revealed or exacerbated cracks in many marital relationships.  The realities of limited social interaction, managing exposure risks and protecting your children while keeping everything going can be exhausting.  Managing conflict with your spouse and carefully considering that relationship have only increased your burdens.

If you are considering a divorce during COVID-19 in Louisville it might help to factor in the following:

News of genuine relief in the form of vaccines show genuine promise for the next 4 to 6 months.  Here in Kentucky the parties are required to wait a minimum of 60 days from the date of the filing of the divorce itself.  The Courts are backed up and if your divorce has any challenging issues such as child custody and parenting time disputes or the ownership of a business you’re still realistically facing May or June of 2021 before it is finalized.  The impact of a divorce during COVID-19 in Louisville will in all likelihood be a lot more manageable in 6 to 9 months from now.
