COVID-19 Question of the Day

Q: Can I take my required parent education class online since we’re social distancing?

A: Not yet. While this is a valid concern, this has not been approved across the board by our judges yet. Given the current circumstances, we are able to file a Motion to ask the Judge for permission if a client requests this.

Feel free to reach out to us if you have specific questions about your plans to take this course, which is required for your Florida divorce.

Hancock Law Firm COVID-19 Update
March 16, 2020

At Hancock Law Firm, the health and safety of our clients and our staff is our highest priority.

The world around us is changing by the moment. We all have questions about Coronavirus and how it’s going to affect our lives and our businesses. Right now, like you, we have many questions.

One thing that does remain constant is your access to legal services. The COVID-19 outbreak has not changed the fact that we remain fully committed to helping our clients obtain the legal outcomes that they deserve in the most professional, efficient and compassionate way possible. Hancock Law Firm is open for business and here to help you in any way that we can.

With that said, we are watching the news with regard to the spread of the virus and the impact on our community closely and are following the lead of the local and federal government and health agencies.

We are taking every precaution possible to ensure the continued health of our clients and staff and we encourage each of you to do the same.

Though we always love spending time with our clients, for now, if an attorney-client meeting can be done via video conference or over the phone, we would prefer that be done for the safety and health of everyone involved.

At this time, none of our hearings have been cancelled but we will be attending court matters and mediations virtually as permitted.

If is necessary for you to come into the office, we are certainly glad to have you here, but please, be mindful of the heightened sensitivity surrounding this virus.

Most importantly, if you feel ill, please stay home we will make all necessary accommodations to continue working for you, simply holding off on meeting in person until you feel better.

 As always, Hancock Law Firm is here for you. Should you need anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Most importantly, take care of yourselves.
