Is California a No-Fault State?

Traditionally, every state required a person filing for divorce to prove “grounds” or some type of spousal fault. Today, the majority of states allow at least some form of “no-fault” divorce, which requires no such proof of wrongdoing. California is a no-fault divorce state, which means either spouse may obtain a divorce even if the other party doesn’t consent.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • There is NO ONE better than Joy Kraft Miles to handle your divorce case.

    “Joy is WAY beyond a simple divorce attorney. Joy is BAD A** (pardon the expression but it is accurate). BAD A** encompasses many things including integrity, intelligence & tenacity. Joy is HONEST, an extremely important trait for a divorce attorney because it is tempting to tell clients he/she has a great case and bill, bill, bill. Joy does not do that. Her goal is always to settle amicably, as long as it is fair and good for her client. Joy is brilliant, from her knowledge of the law itself to emotional intelligence in the form of strategy and effective negotiations. Joy Kraft Miles is a person who I have referred countless friends and clients and EVERY SINGLE ONE has had an amazing result and been thrilled on every level. They all say the same thing...there is NO ONE better than Joy Kraft Miles to handle your divorce case.”

    Former Client

  • Joy has been a beacon of strength and competence during my multiple suits from my ex, and always keeps in mind what is in the children's best interests.

    “Joy has been my attorney for over two years. She's the third attorney I hired for my high-conflict, post-judgment divorce issues with my ex-husband who happens to be the head of his own law firm. Joy is very calm and reasonable and honest. She will tell you what is and is not worth fighting. She will make sure you're not fighting a losing battle or one you have no chance of winning. She'll give her spot on opinions about going to court vs. settling vs. mediation. In the face of nasty letters from my ex and his counsel, she stays cool and responds rationally, diffusing the situation. She keeps me up to date on communications between the parties and is easily available by phone or email during business hours. She is very responsive and will let me know when I'm wasting money on a matter. (I should add that he is the one constantly suing me, not me suing him.) Joy has been a beacon of strength and competence during my multiple suits from my ex, and always keeps in mind what is in the children's best interests. I highly recommend Joy for any divorce issues you may have. I have referred several friends to her and everyone has been happy with their results.”

    Former Client

  • This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.

    “After having lost twice, I saw no hope in sight. I just wanted to be around my son more. I came to Kraft Miles with just my courage and she immediately gave me hope. My ex hired an extremely strong attorney. I'd gone through one attorney that sucked and tried to represent myself on the 2nd time around, only to be taken for a ride by my ex's attorney. Ms. Kraft Miles came in and turned it around. She won my case and got me almost a month of extra vacation time a year with my son. She is uber-confident and knowledgeable. Best litigator by far and to make things better she cares about her clients and strives to have you walking away happy. This attorney is rare and I can promise you she is a 1 out of 100 type lawyer.”

    Oscar A.

  • I think they offer the best value in LA area.

    “I only have great things to say about the professional services I received at Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation and especially from Joy Kraft Miles! They always went the extra miles for my case, they were flexible with payment plans, picked up the phone or returned calls promptly when I called, and I really felt they had my back during my nasty divorce. They were there and knowledgeable to defend me in court. Joy is smart, energetic, resourceful and skillful at negotiating the terms. I think they offer the best value in LA area. You get results and their cost is reasonable. I highly recommend them to anyone.”

    Marie-France

  • Honest and dependable.

    “I have been represented by this firm for over a year now and Joy has displayed the utmost professionalism to me and my case. She continues to keep our best interests at hand and makes every effort to prevail. Her communication is effective and she is well respected. I was referred to her and I am very pleased with her integrity and her style. She has made a true impact on me and on our case and I believe she holds the same values for all her clients. I would recommend her and her staff without hesitation. Honest and dependable. Never have I felt like I wasn't receiving top-notch representation. A++++++”
