Divorce involves the legal termination of a valid marriage. The divorce process involves numerous procedural steps, legal requirements, and strategic considerations. As the saying goes, it is generally far easier to get married than to get divorced.
Divorce can be extremely emotional and so it is the goal of Ramona L. Blankinship, P.A. to make the process as painless as possible for their clients.
Families may need to provide for loved ones who are unable to take care of themselves due to illness, age or any other reasons. Guardianship allows you to make those important life decisions for your loved ones whom can not do so on their own.
"Ramona Blankinship is awesome. Ramona listens to you and reviews and presents the information you provide her. I was impressed that she remembers what you have told her and can repeat it exactly weeks later. She was able to accomplish something that has never been done before in court with my ex-wife. Ms. Donna (legal assistant) always answers the phone with a positive attitude. I have never felt like I am a burden to her office with my issues. I would recommend Ms Blankinship to everyone."

"Ramona represented me through the most harrowing time of my life - divorce after 30 years of marriage. The proceedings went on for over 3 years due to my now ex wife's mental and emotional illness. Through it all Ramona and Donna, her able assistant, were always steadfast and professional in guiding me through the legal maze. They were fair and helped me see clearly in the emotional fog of the grieving process as I slowly watched 30 years of my life dissolve. Ramona and Donna were calming when fear of my uncertain future seemed dim. Today it's all over and instead of what looked like bankruptcy and homelessness I'm well on my way to a safe and happy retirement -- thanks to Ramona and Donna."

"Ramona Blankinship was a God send to me. Facing a divorce that was about to wipe out my entire life, Ramona was a kind caring professional who took extra time to listen to my concerns. She was always ready to help in any manner that was necessary. My spouse was a lying cheating individual who took advantage of every trick in the book to rob me of everything I was entitled to. Ms. Blankinship's experience was very evident in the way she handled herself in each and every one of the proceedings that we attended. The final outcome however hurtful was far better than I had expected. Thank you Ramona for giving me a chance to continue on with my life and ultimately be the happiest man I have been in quite a while."
