Get the Support You Need for Your Divorce or Legal Separation
Divorce Helpline was founded in 1990 to give people an alternative to the traditional adversarial divorce process. Since then, our Santa Cruz attorney mediators have helped thousands of clients navigate the divorce process and gain control of their situation. We are lawyers who provide a wide array of divorce and legal separation services and packages that can help people save money, stress and time.
Attorney mediator Allison Hardin heads our Santa Cruz law office serving the Central Coast. Allison is a Divorce Helpline partner who brings extensive experience in collaborative law and mediation to our Divorce Helpline clients. Allison specializes in Domestic Partnerships/Same-sex marriage, QDROs, and contract negotiations, including Union CBAs. Allison also draws upon her background in mental health to help families who are dealing with addiction. Allison and the Santa Cruz legal team have helped hundreds of people successfully manage their divorce or legal separation and move forward with their lives.
Divorce Helpline offers a variety of options, including divorce mediation and private judge services. Mediation allows you and your spouse to negotiate your divorce and arrive at a settlement with the help of a neutral attorney. Our attorney mediators have helped clients who only had a few issues to settle, as well as those who were sharply divided, find solutions to their disagreements and move toward a final settlement.
Our private judge service lets you select your own private judge who can help you resolve undecided issues and deliver a legally-binding decision. Using a private judge gives you greater control over your divorce, and provides you with privacy not available through the court system. It can also be a way to expedite your divorce proceedings.
We also offer a variety of all-in-one packages for a set price, which include a free initial evaluation and preparation and filing of all of your state-required divorce documents.
If you are going through a litigated divorce, we can also help. We provide coaching and consultation, document preparation and review, collaborative divorce services, child and spousal support calculations and other litigation support that can make the process easier on you and your children.
