After Midnight

There was a rule in our home growing up (ok, several rules, but one pertinent to this post): we were not allowed to call someone on the phone after 9pm. Back in those days, there were no cell phones and no texting. If you wanted to call someone, you picked up the phone attached to the wall in your house and called the person at their house, who answered the phone attached to their wall.

The World Turned Upside Down

Six months. We've lived in this alternate universe now for six months. And what's more, there is no end in sight. Some big companies are telling their employees to plan to work remotely through the summer of 2021. Of course, that's still a whole year away.

New Questions in Family Law Related to COVID 19

I hope you all are doing well, dear readers. Governor Kemp's announcement that shelter in place will be extended in Georgia until the end of April has been difficult for the majority of the people. The quarantine in Georgia so far is not as effective as we hoped. The number of people that have been diagnosed with coronavirus and tested positive is still growing exponentially, and death toll in Georgia is still terrifying. As Governor Kemp admitted today, radically re-opening Georgia won't help those numbers.

Kemp's Executive Order #2, The Family Law Version

Kemp's Executive Orders Analyzed and Maybe Explained

Governor Kemp has issued two Executive Orders in rapid succession. The first one dropped on April 2 and the second one on April 3. The April 2 Order is more extensive. The April 3 Order covered some additional ground. I will review the first Executive Order in this post. I'll review the second one in the next post.

Quarantined with Your Abuser

As many people retreat home to avoid risking further spread of COVID-19, jokes abound. The quarantine is testing the strength of the love and tolerance you feel for those who live in your household: your significant other - how the hell did you not notice, after all this time, their annoying humming habit. You jokingly announce that you have contemplated murder in hopes the infuriating habit would cease.
