Let’s Brainstorm Your Choices

Worry & Anxiety – Most people fretting about a military divorce cannot visualize what that will look like or how it plays out. At Ryan Family Law, we believe in talking honestly with callers considering divorce, so they know what (1) to expect after choosing to file for divorce, or (2) if you have been served divorce papers, what to expect in the weeks ahead.

We do not apply a slash-and-burn approach to family law. We believe that approaching your spouse with guns blazing, intimidation, or “bully” legal tactics can cause irreparable harm to your post-divorce future and might end up costing you more in attorney fees than through a calm and reasoned approach.

We want to guide our clients to amicable, cost-effective solutions through calm and reasoned negotiation and collaborative law whenever possible. That said, if your spouse refuses to be reasonable, Contra Costa divorce attorney Paul J. Ryan is always prepared for aggressive litigation to accomplish our client’s goals.
