Davalos Law Firm PC: Stockton Family Law Attorney Offering Compassionate Legal Support

Stockton, CA - Separating after a short or long marriage can be scary and painful, especially when a spouse has children, pets, and assets. It can also be confusing, emotionally, and financially draining, taking a toll on all parties.

The Davalos Law Firm PC Stockton family law attorney has resolved many divorce and family law matters. Mr. Davalos provides clients with strategic, intelligent, and passionate representation, leveraging extensive experience, resources, and family law practices/techniques. 

Though divorce in California can be uncontested, spouses who can’t come to a mutual agreement on terms undergo a contested divorce, requiring the court’s intervention. The common causes for contested divorce include financial disputes, child custody battles, alimony/support issues, property division, and relational/emotional conflicts.


Since a contested divorce is a multi-step legal process with many facets, a Stockton divorce attorney files a petition to solicit a response from the other spouse. During the discovery phase, both parties can gather evidence to support their claims before attending mediation or settlement negotiations. 


However, if mediation fails, the court can schedule pretrial hearings to address the preliminary issues and set a trial date for both sides to present their arguments, evidence, and witnesses. Once the judge issues a final decree of divorce and outlines the terms, either party may choose to appeal the decision.


As an alternative to contested divorce, Davalos Law Firm PC may recommend collaborative divorce, where spouses work with a specially trained attorney to resolve disputes outside court. Open communication promotes a cooperative atmosphere, reduces conflict, and leads to quicker resolutions. Even in litigation, both parties prioritize respectful dialogue, maintaining a more positive relationship.  


In arbitration, a neutral third party listens to both sides and makes binding decisions on disputed issues. Unlike litigation, arbitration offers a more streamlined, private, and cost-effective approach. 


Davalos Law Firm PC Stockton family lawyers advise clients to memorize all communication in texts/emails and keep social media profiles private to minimize conflict, whether in arbitration, a contested, uncontested, or collaborative situation.
