Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

Thinking of the future in military child custody matters

In a military divorce, what sort of child custody terms end up being established in the divorce can not only affect the parents and the kids in the short term, but in the long term as well. Thus, when in negotiations over such terms, it is important to not only think about the present, but also the future.

On this note, one thing it can be important to keep in mind when it comes to child custody matters is what sorts of custody issues could be particularly likely to come up in the future. Different types of families can have different types of likely future custody issues. By factoring likely future custody issues into a child custody agreement, divorcing parents could be helping reduce the chances of costly and contentious disputes coming up down the line in relation to these issues. This can be beneficial both for the kids and the parents.

For military families, a class of custody issues that can commonly come up down the road are issues connected to the fact that members of the military often end up getting reassigned and having to relocate to a new location, such as parental relocation issues. Thus, potential future relocation issues are among the special issues it can be important to factor in when working on coming up with a child custody agreement in a military divorce.

Our firm understands the special issues, both those relating to the present and those relating to the future, that can arise in relation to military child custody. Whether a divorcing parent is a military member or is splitting from a member of the military, we can work closely with them in child custody negotiations and proceedings to help them with pinning down what the major present and future child custody issues are for them and with trying to reach a child custody agreement that addresses these issues in an effective and appropriate matter.
