We do not require a retainer. Fortunately, when the Pandemic hit us in March 2020, we had already been a paperless office for many years with two cloud based case management systems. However, the Pandemic propelled us to make many improvements to our client service protocols, retainer requirements, direct calendaring, electronic exchanges and remote systems being some examples. This has allowed our firm to concentrate more on client service and less on wasteful antiquated management systems. If you entrust us with your family law matter, you'll be in excellent hands.

When It's Over,
It's time to move on

How to Remain Civil During a Divorce

When you’re going through a divorce, it’s normal to feel a wide range of emotions. You might feel angry and hurt about how your spouse treated you during your marriage and or scared about what the future will be like. However, you should try to remain as civil as you can to make the process easier. Here are a few ways to stay civil during your divorce:

Take care of your physical and mental health

If you feel good physically and mentally, you’re more likely to remain civil with your spouse during your divorce.  Eat a nutritious diet, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep. If you’re struggling emotionally, consider speaking to a mental health therapist. He or she can teach you healthy ways to cope with your emotions.

Look towards the future

One mistake some people make during their divorce is dwelling on the past. This doesn’t do anyone any good. If you continue to think about all the bad things your spouse did, you won’t move on and will have trouble remaining civil towards your spouse. Instead, your divorce lawyer in Alameda County, CA will advise you to focus on the future.

Plan your conversations in advance

If you tend to get flustered when communicating with your spouse, you should consider writing down the topics you want to discuss ahead of time. Doing so may help alleviate stress and prevent you from arguing with your spouse.
