Divorce/Legal Separation

Parties considering marital dissolution or legal separation can attend the online dissolution/legal separation brief held on Tuesday and Thursday at 0745 using Zoom (www.zoom.com).  We have suspended the classroom dissolution brief until further notice.  Parties interested in attending the online brief must email Mr. Tracey Clark (tracey.clark@usmc.mil) requesting the meeting (brief) invitation no later than 4 pm the day before the requested brief.  Mr. Clark will send the meeting invitation email before 6 pm the day before the requested brief.  Users have reported not being able to access www.zoom.com on the military government networks, so you should attempt to access the site and brief on a non-government network.  

 

After you register for the brief, your registration confirmation email will contain the information needed to join the meeting.  All participants will be placed in a waiting room until the Host admits them to the meeting.  Each participant must request a meeting invitation and register for the meeting.  Do not share the meeting invitation because only participants invited to the meeting by the Host will be allowed to enter the meeting. 

 

Divorce/Legal Separation Mediation

We have suspended the in-person mediation program until further notice, but assistance may be provided through the Do It Yourself (DIY) mediation program.  The DIY mediation program's steps will be contained in the dissolution brief meeting invitation email or can be requested by emailing tracey.clark@usmc.mil.  Mediation services provided by the Camp Pendleton Legal Assistance Office will be covered during the dissolution/legal separation brief.
