Toburen Law remains open for business. We are now conducting meetings in our office, consistent with Governor Whitmer’s most recent executive orders. For clients who wish to meet in person, we are doing so, with necessary precautions. If you prefer not to meet in person, we are happy to meet with you via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, or over the phone.
In-Person Meeting Guidelines
If you wish to meet with us in person, we are taking the necessary precautions to ensure your safety and the safety of everyone in our building. Our building is cleaned frequently, and all of our conference rooms and other common surfaces are disinfected after every meeting.
Masks – It is our policy to wear a mask when we meet with a client or other visitor at our office. Masks are recommended for our clients and other visitors but are not required. If you want to wear a mask, please feel free to do so. We can also provide a mask if you do not have one.
Social Distancing – As much as we enjoy a good handshake, we will be following 6-foot social distancing guidelines at this time. Our conference rooms allow for proper social distancing. With this in mind, we also are asking that our clients bring no more than one other person with them to our office for a meeting.
Several of our conference rooms now have dividers on the tables to provide even more protection. Please let us know if you prefer to meet in one of these rooms, and we will be able to accommodate your request.
All of our conference rooms also have disinfectant wipes and will be wiped down after every meeting.
Receptionist – As of Monday, June 8, we will once again have a receptionist in the office to greet our visitors. If you prefer to limit your contact with others, please let us know prior to your meeting. We will greet you at the front door when you arrive and will walk you directly to your meeting room.
Signing Documents – We can help you sign, witness, and notarize your important legal documents. During the Covid-19 crisis, documents can be witnessed and notarized remotely, by video. Please let us know if you would prefer to sign remotely, rather than in our office. To sign remotely, all you need is access to one of the many video services that are available.
You can also meet with us at our office to sign your documents. In addition to the safety measures outlined above, we are now using antimicrobial pens for our document signings.
Courthouse Access and Hearings
Courts in Michigan remained closed to live or in-person hearings, with very few exceptions.
Most hearings are now being conducted via Zoom. If you have a family law issue and need to be heard by the court, we can file a motion and your hearing will be scheduled, as normal.
