"During this COVID-19 crisis, we continue to provide collaborative family law services for divorce, post-decree, pre and postnuptial, and parentage matters. The collaborative method is not affected by the temporary closure of Illinois courts, as all negotiations are done outside of the court process. We are also able to have these collaborative settlement meetings through audio/video meeting technology. This will allow us to abide by the Federal and State guidelines for "social distancing" while continuing to move your case to full and final resolution. Of course, as always, we continue to provide free initial consultations, which can be performed using that same technology. We look forward to serving you." -- Lawrence Manassa
