Litigated Divorce Services

While an amicable divorce approach works for some couples, it is not the best option for everyone. At times, a litigated divorce is the only option. As these types of divorces can quickly get contentious, it is important to consult with an experienced divorce attorney who will fight to protect your interests.

With over 70 years of experience, our Oxnard divorce attorneys are dedicated to helping you navigate the process of a litigated divorce.

Mediation Services

At SANTO MEHAS A Professional Law Corporation, we also offer mediation services led by attorney Donna Carol Santo, a certified specialist, Family Law California Board of Legal Specialization and certified mediator through the Institute for Dispute Resolution, Pepperdine University School of Law.

Known as a form of alternative dispute resolution, divorce mediation is led by a neutral, third-party individual who helps you and your spouse come to an agreement regarding any issues you have about spousal support, child custody, and more.

Why You Need an Attorney to File for Divorce

If you are seeking a divorce, you might be wondering if you can file for divorce on your own. Here are some reasons why you should hire an attorney to represent your interests in a divorce:

Secure legal advice from a seasoned attorney

An experienced attorney will explain what your rights are while you go through the divorce process and make sure that your interests are protected throughout. Your attorney will also be able to help you file the correct paperwork, make sure you receive the best settlement possible, and can litigate on your behalf if your spouse refuses to come to a divorce agreement with you.

Reduce stress

Divorce is a stressful time for everyone involved. It is a time commitment and can take an emotional toll on both spouses. A divorce attorney can handle the logistics and paperwork for you, so that you can focus more on taking care of yourself and your family.

Avoid making costly mistakes

As the legal system is complex, it is easy to make a mistake as you file for divorce. Making a small mistake could negatively affect the outcome of your divorce. By hiring an attorney, you can rest assured that your case will be properly handled and that you will avoid costly mistakes.

  • “Donna, through her vast experience, was able to give me my financial life back and has made it possible for me to plan for my future.”

    Great family law attorney. I consulted with Donna Santo regarding my complex family law case and was immediately impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and experience. Throughout my case I was given status updates and was able to pick up the phone and contact Donna. I never felt lost during the process. Donna was able to answer all of my questions and respond to all of my concerns. My ex wife went through several attorneys and even was self-represented for a while. Through all of this, Donna stayed the course, went to trial and we prevailed on all issues.

    Because of Donna’s ability to understand real property laws, ours was in another country, complex income tax issues, self-employment and corporation income components, breach of fiduciary duty in my case, we were able to present our well-prepared case to the court.

    Donna, through her vast experience, was able to give me my financial life back and has made it possible for me to plan for my future.

    Needless to say I am pleased with the outcome in my case and highly recommend Donna, and her helpful staff, to anyone needing a professional Family Law attorney in Ventura County.

  • “A+ lawyer!”

    It's been a constant struggle with my son's father, before acquiring Ms. Donna Santo as my attorney, I had no chance to show the courts the stress my ex was causing for me and my son. Ms. Santo and her team have helped me exercise my rights as a mother and legally they have put me in a position to ultimately give my son the best life possible. Her staff was extremely professional and helpful. I was very satisfied with the services I received and I would highly recommend her. She is a good listener and she gave me great advice. Ms. Santo went above and beyond to make sure I fully understood the process and responded quickly to emails and voicemails. She is the greatest lawyer ever.

  • “Donna Santo is a no nonsense, highly professional family attorne”

    Donna Santo is a no nonsense, highly professional family attorney. She has many years of experience which I found to be critical when it came to working in the family court system. She has had experience with all the judges and therefore quickly formulates a plan that is realistic, and has the best chance of success. You could not make a better choice to help you through this incredibly difficult situation.

  • “We are forever grateful to Mr. Mehas”
    Hiring Santo Mehas Professional Law Firm, specifically Michael Mehas has been a tremendous blessing. Divorce and child custody is a very stressful, unpleasant and unpredictable experience and Mr. Mehas has been our sword and shield throughout the process. Without the support and guidance of his expertise, I’m not sure where my family would be. We are forever grateful to Mr. Mehas for fighting for us and we are very happy with the outcome of our case.

    Never fun needing to hire a lawyer but Michael and Donna were great to work with and helped to make the process go smoothly. They were both easy to reach, offered clear advice, and were honest in all of their interactions. I recommend them if you find yourself in need of solid legal help.
