What is Family Law?

Family law encompasses the body of legal statutes and issues surrounding domestic relationships. It governs the relationships between family members.

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.

  • The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1!

    “I have been in and out of family court for the past 14 years battling a high conflict case. I have had a total of 5 different attorneys prior to finding this firm. This firm is the ONLY firm that made me feel cared for, heard, and understood. The patience they had for all my questions, issues and concerns, the dedication working late hours to do the best job possible. The true care and attention they put into my case makes this firm the best firm I have ever dealt with. My case is a high conflict case and before I found Brigitte and Joy I was completely lost and taken advantage of by my previous attorneys. The entire staff at Kraft Miles went above and beyond their duties at all times from day 1! Having dealt with so many attorneys, I would, hands down, recommend this firm to everyone in need of representation. They have been a light in my path after such a long dark road! I am so grateful.”

    Sheyla C.

  • I highly recommend this firm!

    “Joy provides exceptional representation with the highest level of experience and treated my case with genuine care. I highly recommend this firm!”

    Wyler S.

  • She was very prompt in replying back to me was very helpful and knowledgeable.

    “Joy pointed me in the right direction for the issue I was dealing with but I can say, not like many I've tried to talk with, she was very prompt in replying back to me was very helpful and knowledgeable.”


  • In her office she is attentive & mild mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG!

    “Child custody and divorce cases can be costly, anyone going into one should know that up front. That being said, Joy Kraft has been extremely reasonable & willing to work with me. The initial law firm I used was much more expensive & yielded zero results. Iin fact, I believe even hurt my case from the start. Joy took over my case & since then things have been moving in my direction & getting much better. My case is a child custody case & when it initially started (before Joy took over) I only had 6hrs of visitation per week with my child. I now have 3 overnights & 2 weekdays every other week & my case is most certainly not over so more time is on it's way. I went from about 5% time with my child to about 30% with more time most certainly on the way. Joy pays attention to detail & she knows my case just as well as I do. In her office she is attentive & mild-mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG ! She is quit impressive in the courtroom & she knows family law just as well as she will know your case. I could not be happier with my choice of representation. I feel very confident knowing I have a lawyer who knows my case & is fighting tooth & nail on my behalf. I highly recommend Joy Kraft to anyone going through a Family Law issue”


  • I can't thank you enough!

    “Thank you for being so sweet, kind, caring and supportive in the past three years even though it wasn't easy for anyone. I'm deeply sorry that you had to deal with my crazy marriage, but without you the end wouldn't have happened. I am extremely happy it is over! I can't thank you enough!”
