  • What is family law?
    Family law deals with legal issues related to family relationships, such as divorce, child custody, adoption, and domestic violence.
  • Why should I hire a family law attorney?
    A family law attorney can provide legal guidance, support, and representation during a family law case. They can help you navigate the legal system and work towards a favorable outcome.
  • What is the difference between a contested and uncontested divorce?
    A contested divorce is when the parties involved cannot agree on the terms of the divorce, such as division of assets and child custody. An uncontested divorce is when both parties agree on all terms of the divorce and can file jointly.
  • Can I modify a child custody agreement?
    Yes, a child custody agreement can be modified if there has been a significant change in circumstances, such as a relocation or a change in the child's needs.
  • What is mediation in family law?
    Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party helps the parties involved in a family law case to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. It can be a less adversarial and less expensive alternative to going to court.

    I had a divorce and child custody case and Santo Mehas represented me. Michael Mehas traveled from his Ventura office to Fresno to appear on my behalf and was diligent in fighting for my rights as a parent. We had a positive outcome with agreeable visitation rights. I was able to be a part of my child’s life which is priceless.

  • “Donna fought for me and she will fight for you.”
    I have a pretty complicated case that needed a lot of things done quickly and Donna was able to not only get them done but she knocked it out of the park and I am very happy with the outcome. She is also great at communicating things throughout the process in a way that I could understand.

  • “It’s like a family & they wanna make sure your family is well taken care of”

    I needed assistance ASAP! I called many firms & I was turned away due to COVID & the emergency of my case. I contacted Donna & Michael & they were there so fast, helped me prep, told me what to expect, what they needed from me & explained the processes. I highly recommend their services but be prepared to go to battle because Donna & Michael will literally go into that battle & win it. I have had great experiences with them as a professional team & know when I need them they are there to help, guide & support. It’s like a family & they wanna make sure your family is well taken care of. I appreciate them so much. Thank you.

  • “I feel fortunate to have a law firm like Santo Mehas in my corner.”

    I feel fortunate to have a law firm like Santo Mehas in my corner. I always felt like I was the most important client they had no matter what the issue was that I was dealing with. Michael Mehas and Donna Santo are accessible, compassionate and incredibly focused on getting me the best outcome for my family and business legal issues. This has been a true blessing to me over the years, and the relief I have felt the times I have dealt with them has made running my business and personal life much smoother. I have also recommended them to several of my friends and clients and I would do so again without hesitation in the future.
