Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates (Updated: 3/23/2020):
We only plan to post updates here as to our office and updates we believe would affect current clients.
At this time, The Heisler Law Group has made the following changes to its operations due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19):
- The Office is closed to the public, except for scheduled in-office appointments that are allowed under Michigan EO 2020-21, and the same will be limited as is required. Appointments in the office REQUIRE an attorney to review the request to see if it complies with an exception to Michigan EO 2020-21. Persons just showing up will not be granted access.
- We are now offering zoom video appointments and by phone when in-person appointments are not offered. We will have limited staff in the office to allow others to work remote as provided by Michigan EO 2020-21
- Staff continues to reach out to our local courts to see if changes will be affecting client cases and will advise clients as we become aware.
Because of the limits placed on our firm under Michigan EO 2020-21 our goal to return calls has changed from the end of the next business day to the end of the second business day (one extra business day). This will be while Michigan EO 2020-21 is in effect and likely for a short time after. We are sorry for this delay.
We have been advised courthouses and other government buildings have or will be having limited access. This means that some court appearance are being changed. We are advising clients on a case by case basis. We plan to update this page as we get updates. We are recommending that you check this page the day before any court appearances for updates also.
Under Michigan EO 2020-21(7)(b)(4), parents are to continue to do child exchanges and follow all court orders. We are suggesting clients have their current orders with them.
Because courts and other government agencies are reviewing their options, there may be very little notice if something changes, i.e. dates or how a case will proceed. For this reason, we are recommending that clients ensure we have a telephone number where clients can be reached, and to further ensure voice mails are set up and are not allowed to fill to the point messages can’t be left. Some cellular providers are offering expanded voicemail packages for more messages. Clients may want to investigate this option with their provider.
