People often ask me who I think the best divorce lawyer in Santa Rosa, California is. It is a fair question, and I typically respond to it with a question of my own: ‘Why are you looking for a family law attorney in Sonoma County?’
“Well” they often reply, “I would really like to do an uncontested divorce like Go Divorce Clinic does, but I just think my spouse won’t cooperate, so I need to get a good divorce attorney to protect my rights”.
“What ‘rights’ are you concerned about?” I often inquire.
“Well I don’t know. I’m just worried that my spouse will get a divorce lawyer to go after me”.
Sound familiar? Of course it does, I hear it all the time. The unfortunate revelation here is that most of the time it isn’t necessarily their spouse, their rights, or even the divorce itself that is scaring them into feeling like they need a lawyer, it is the fear that a divorce lawyer will get involved on the other side that will attack them. Welcome to the dark reality of family law. This ugly and unfortunate pattern plays itself out in the field of family law over and over. People getting divorce attorneys because they are afraid of getting attacked by a divorce lawyer that their spouse might hire. This conventional divorce scenario often becomes a dangerous, costly and all too destructive process that in my estimation never ever yields a “winner”.
In such circumstances I encourage the individual that I am speaking with to have their spouse at least call our office to discuss their concerns with a neutral divorce facilitator at Go Divorce Clinic.

Many people I come across in Sonoma County have no idea that they can successfully represent their own interests in a divorce proceeding. They feel they must have a Santa Rosa divorce lawyer to “stick up for their rights”. They are often surprised to learn that they can have court forms drafted for them by a registered legal document assistant that would allow them to conduct their own divorce proceeding exactly the way they want. Even in cases where their spouse has a family law attorney representing them, we have assisted many to move forward with the dissolution self-represented and in a way that they feel is exactly what they want. Many, many times, individuals come to my office frustrated because their family law lawyers won’t “do what I am asking them to do”. Instead they find that their divorce attorney is more like a hired gun “causing trouble” and “doing things that make my spouse really angry” – and the bills are mounting at the same time that nothing seems to be happening.
Go Divorce Clinic of Sonoma County invites you to switch gears and discover the ease and productivity of self-representation. Stopping the “ugly divorce” is our specialty at the Go Divorce Clinic. We feel that listening to and empowering our clients instead of telling them what they should do meets their needs much better. We see cases that have dragged on for months and even years come to a close once those individuals discovered that, with our assistance, they could represent their own interests and actually get things done – and at a far less cost than with attorneys. We understand that a divorcing person needs information, not antagonism.
