McKean Family Law is located in Placer County, which has authorized professional offices to re-open as part of California’s Phase II reopening. We are carefully following the safety advice of state and local health authorities. Drop-ins are discouraged to ensure we limit the number of people in the office and we continue to encourage phone or teleconference appointments in lieu of face to face meetings. If you do feel the need to have an in-person meeting, masks are encouraged at all times and will be required if we cannot maintain 6 foot distances. This would include situations where there will be more than one person present (for example, you have a support person with you, mediations with both parties are present, depositions with multiple people in the conference room, etc.). We are taking necessary precautions including daily disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces. We provide disposable masks and hand sanitizer for use in the office for your health and safety. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about the safety measures we are taking to “slow the spread”.
The courts are beginning to accept new filings and have resumed conducting hearings. However, the hearings take place telephonically or by Zoom telepresence meetings until further notice. We will ensure that you receive instructions on how to appear at your hearing and discuss with you the process before the hearing so you know what to expect. Emergency and domestic violence protection orders can still be obtained on short notice if you or your children are in a dangerous or violent situation
