Erin King Interviewed by The Commercial Appeal About Rise in Divorce Filings Amid COVID-19

Cordell & Cordell Regional Managing Attorney Erin King was interviewed by The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis, Ten., discussing the rise of divorce filings in Shelby County and how the COVID-19 pandemic may have played a part in the increase.

Ms. King highlighted how the pandemic may have added stress to marriages that already had existing issues.

“I don’t think COVID caused some of these problems that we’re seeing in clients,” Ms. King said. “I do think it has been a tipping point for many.”

She also emphasized the need to readdress financial obligations like spousal and child support amid the furloughs and other economic impacts of the pandemic.

“As parties have lost their jobs, or seen a reduction in child support income, it’s become necessary to address those types of things,” Ms. King said.
