Child Support

When making decisions about children, the courtroom puts a child’s needs first. Courts look for the children to share in the standard of living of both parents, as well as each parent’s circumstances and station in life when making a ruling.

Often, people assume that only one parent is burdened with financially supporting the child. This is not so. Both parties have duty to provide for a child. California’s “guideline child support,” a complicated formula, considers each parent’s custodial timeshare, income, mandatory job-related expenses, as well as tax deductions such as mortgage interest and property taxes. Once child support is ordered, we can assist with obtaining a wage garnishment or terminating one.

If you want to modify an existing child support order, you should demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances. If you have recently experienced a significant life event that may continue for some duration, such as losing a job, changing custody arrangements, or becoming disabled, you should request an immediate modification. Child support modifications usually only apply to the future, and back-owed child support is only due if there was an order requiring it be paid.

At any stage of child support arrangements, from initial rulings to modifications, you can trust Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation to help. We know how to navigate the complicated calculations and argue in your favor. We can make sure your child is living a similar stand of living in each custodial household, assist you with getting paid on time and regularly, and save you money, time and stress.

Premarital or Prenuptial Agreements

“Prenuptial contracts,” “premarital agreements,” and “prenups” are types of legal documents written before the wedding and they follow very specific rules if they are to be enforceable.

Often, these contracts center around wealth. They can determine which property belongs to whom throughout the marriage, and they can decide how to divide property should the marriage end. They can also be used to change obligations regarding spousal support. People of modest means can still use these contracts to discuss their financial plans, disclose their current economic health, and prevent a costly divorce.

By putting these decisions in writing now, you can begin your relationship with open disclosure and focus on the love that brought you together.

Our team can assist you and your partner in creating a contract that works for you. We can even offer you mediation services, should you need extra help.

  • I would highly recommend Joy and Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation.

    “As soon as I went in for my consultation with Joy, I knew I didn't need to go meet with anyone else. She was professional and very understanding of my situation. Her prices were reasonable and I couldn't have asked for Joy and her team to represent me any better. They were on top of any correspondence I sent, answered all of my questions and concerns. Joy also "talked me off the ledge" sometimes making me see reason, thereby saving me money. I would highly recommend Joy and Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation”

    Julie S.

  • Her wisdom, grace, and honesty are second to none.

    “If you are looking for an ethical attorney who truly cares for her clients, will go above and beyond, and one who isn’t just in it for dollars and cents then Joy is your woman. I feel incredibly lucky to have found her, from our initial consult to Joy helping me through my case, Joy always made sure to have time for me, gave me valuable information, and weighed out the pros and cons. Joy takes a holistic approach to matters but she will also fight for you. She didn’t always tell me what I wanted to hear but told me what I NEEDED to hear. Her wisdom, grace, and honesty are second to none. If you’re thinking about getting an attorney, you will be lucky to have her! Joy is truly one of a kind.”


  • I never felt like just another client.

    “Hiring Joy as my attorney was the best decision I could have made. I never felt like just another client. She took the time to explain everything and never made me feel like I was a bother. I have already recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so.”

    “Very nice and helpful lady, she helped me out a lot. I recommend everyone to her, she will go out of her way to help you out!”


  • I am beyond grateful to have had Joy represent me. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and professional.

    “There is no doubt that Kraft Miles Law Corporation will go above and beyond with representing you! When I first came to Joy, I felt very concerned that a false civil harassment restraining order could potentially affect my personal record and prospective job opportunities. At the initial consultation, Joy was very straightforward and guided me through my options. She also took into consideration my personal situation and was able to provide affordable pricing. As the firm took on my case, all of the staff were very patient. They answered all of my questions and followed up with me to ensure that I had everything filed on time. With this being my first time in court, Joy explained to me how the hearing would go and what the different outcomes would be. Joy eased my anxieties and helped me feel very confident with fighting this case. I am beyond grateful to have had Joy represent me. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and professional. I would absolutely recommend the Kraft Miles Law Firm for anyone going through a difficult time and in need of family law services!”
