Like businesses throughout our service area, we are taking the necessary steps to protect the public during the COVID-19 outbreak. We have made key changes to our operations to ensure your safety and to comply with social distancing guidelines in our states.
The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting families throughout the United States. Jennifer Fairfax and her team will continue to do everything we can to help our current and future clients.
Here’s what you need to know if you are considering getting in touch with us:
1. We Are Continuing to Operate During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Our team has always worked virtually, using our phones, Skype, and email as principal points of contact. We are still able to coordinate with many courts and agencies. It is not necessary to come to our office to get the assistance you need.
2. You Can Reach Us Via Email With Your Questions
We are continuing to work on cases, including new cases, on a daily basis. The best way to reach us or set an appointment is by sending an email to Helen@JenniferFairfax.com or using our “contact us” feature through our website, www.jenniferfairfax.com. If you are not yet a client, please do not send confidential information by email or through our website.
3. Many Adoption Cases Have Been Postponed
Adoption cases are currently being set by the courts for June or July. However, there are some limited exceptions. Cases requiring an emergency hearing, such as consent hearings in the state of Virginia, are still being scheduled as soon as possible in many jurisdictions.
4. ICPC is Still Operating at Reduced Capacity
The ICPC office is still processing referrals at this time. Adoptive parents will get home as soon as they possibly can. Still, it’s important to expect some delays. ICPC staff members are hard at work and doing a terrific job during the COVID-19 outbreak!
5. Jennifer Fairfax Clients Are Receiving Full Support
We are continuing to provide full support to all of our existing clients. That includes, among other things, developing contracts for ART clients, completing other legal procedures as needed, and managing parentage orders in the jurisdictions where they are still being processed. Our team remains available for any questions, concerns, or comments.

No matter where you are in the United States, we urge you to follow social distancing guidelines. Avoid non-essential travel and do not gather in groups.
No matter how long the COVID-19 outbreak lasts, our team will continue to observe all the necessary safeguards to protect you and each other. All of our services are available and we’ll work around any delays outside of our control to the very best of our ability.
