Family Law Now 🎙 LIVE presents a new virtual event with Ontario divorce lawyers of Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers.

Turbulent Times: Pandemic Divorce, Travel & Vaccines in Family Law

The COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on many families and as a result divorce rates have risen and there have been unique trends that have developed in family law disputes due to differing opinions on pandemic-related issues.

In this 1-hour webinar, Russell Alexander hosts Ontario-based Collaborative Family Lawyers, Rick Peticca and Alex De Melo, to offer their insights and expertise on navigating divorce and co-parenting disagreements surrounding travel and the vaccine.

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit their questions for the panelists to address during the Q&A portion of the presentation. As always, to respect confidentiality, audience members’ identities will remain anonymous to other attendees.

Registration is complimentary. Reserve your spot now as spaces are limited.

For those who attend and submit a question, you will be eligible for a complimentary copy of Russell Alexander’s “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Divorce: Russell Alexander’s Guide to Separation, Divorce and Family Law” E-Book and a $5 discount towards the hard copy.
