The Covid-19 Pandemic has led to many changes for clients, advocates of divorce cases and even the family courts and its judges.The changes include the following:
From the biggest law firm with many advocates of divorce cases to even the "one-man show" type of law firms, all have been affected by the anti-pandemic requirement that they work from home by default.Because WFH has been the default for some time, most advocates of divorce cases would be very familiar with WFH by now.
Because the family courts use Zoom for court hearings during the pandemic, many advocates of divorce cases have become familiar with the use of Zoom.
In the past, before the pandemic, question and answer sessions (examination and cross-examination) had always required to be "in person".Now, during the pandemic, even these are conducted via Zoom.
For many advocates of divorce cases, most client interviews (which in the past would have been conducted in person and face to face) are now done over the phone whenever possible.Where it is necessary or more productive, interviews are also sometimes conducted via WhatsApp or Zoom.
Some advocates of divorce cases started off working from home by working from home on some days and returning to the office on other days.However, as the requirement to WFH by default continued over an extended period of time, more and more advocates of divorce cases have adapted their work flow so that they can now do all their office work remotely from home.
More and more advocates of divorce cases have moved completely to e-signatures (so that there is no longer any need for physical signatures to be signed onto hard copies of letters, court documents, etc.)This is in order for them to be able to do all their work remotely from home,
