How Do I File for Divorce in CA?

Whether you are facing a contested or uncontested divorce, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. Many of these choices must be made prior to settling a divorce.

During your divorce, you will need to make decisions regarding:

Some cases can be resolved through negotiation or mediation. Other divorces will need to be settled in the courtroom before a judge. Whatever your circumstance, our goal is to represent your interests effectively. We take you and your children’s needs into consideration every step of the way.

What Are Grounds for Divorce in California?

According to California Family Code, divorce can be granted on one of two grounds:

  • Irreconcilable differences
  • Incurable insanity

California, unlike other states, is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a divorce can be granted as long as one party says that there are irreconcilable differences. Further, when you claim irreconcilable differences as the cause for your divorce, you do not have to provide any proof of those differences, even if your spouse disagrees. California courts are not concerned with who is at fault for causing the irreconcilable differences.

However, if you claim incurable insanity as your reason for divorcing your spouse, then you do have to provide proof to the courts that your spouse is incurably insane – this could be medical records or psychiatric testimony.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • HIRE THIS FINE ATTORNEY!

    “Joy showed up, did her job in court and won our case—end of story. I showed up unannounced and Joy met with me and listened—greatly appreciated. HIRE THIS FINE ATTORNEY!”

    Melinda

  • Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable.

    “Joy, your name gives meaning to what you bring in life! Thank you for being an exceptionally wonderful person. Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable. You are one amazing woman. I want to wish blessings upon your work, your office, and your gorgeous little family. May God bless you infinitely.”

  • If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!

    “I came to Joy after several years of custody issues with my daughter that I thought would be resolved by itself. Initially, I would only see my daughter one night a week and one day on the weekend with no overnights. I tried to reason with my ex but with no success. The odds of getting equal custody (50/50) were not in my favor, but I figured something had to be done because I wasn't seeing my daughter and I didn't want to lose the precious time with my young daughter. I was scared of the legal cost they might incur during the process and the child support I will need to pay (my ex has not been working, or at least claimed to not be working).

    What started out as a simple custody case quickly escalated into a legal nightmare when the mother of my child filed a restraining order and tried every legal maneuver to prolong the custody hearing of our child. Joy and her team were able to diffuse the legal roller coasters I was going through, present the judge with the facts, and show the lack of credibility of my ex.

    Joy is professional, caring, and will go out of her way to make sure her clients are represented. On one of our court appearances, my ex managed to change the judge (a commissioner) to a different courthouse on the same day in the afternoon. Joy had another case in the afternoon and could not represent me, however, she managed to find just as good a replacement to represent me at a moment's notice free of charge! Sounds too good to be true.

    When I first came in to consult with Joy about my situation I was worried about the legal cost that might add up. I will never forget when she said "this will be the best money you ever spent". Boy was she right! I now have 50/50 custody, don't have to pay my ex as much child support as we originally anticipated, Joy managed to convince the judge to impute more than a minimum wage salary on my ex, but most of all I have the peace of mind my daughter will share equal time with both of her parents.

    If you have any family/custody issues do not hesitate to consult and hire Joy, she's a legal genie!


    I've said it many times and I'll continue to say it, thank you Joy!

  • It's been a long and difficult road, but I can't imagine having accomplished this independence without Joy and her team.

    “I came to Joy in January afraid and confused after an altercation with my husband. She listened to me thoughtfully and professionally and guided me through my options. We set up a temporary restraining order, settled our division of assets, filed for divorce, and sold my marital home with her knowledge and strength physically protecting me and awarding me with the best possible financial result. It's been a long and difficult road, but I can't imagine having accomplished this independence without Joy and her team. I originally was referred to her through a mutual acquaintance being told she "fought hard for women". I can now confirm that to be true through my experience. Thank you, Joy”

  • Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!

    “Joy is the most marvelous attorney in Los Angeles. From the start she gave a thorough consultation which included both a Domestic Violence Restraining Order and Divorce, she answered many of my questions such as having the notice of related cases, DVRO questions, divorce inquiries, which other law offices I contacted did not inform me of (even with consulting) thus indicating for me, she was the one. She is passionate about her position - which is of high importance to me - especially dealing with a traumatic DVRO, she is delicate and professional. I was quite impressed with her experience in dv/family law - always accruing other information and creative thinking as the cases move. I am so happy with selecting Joy - an empowering woman and attorney who definitely encouraged my confidence going into a very detrimental case, DVRO and Divorce, at the same time.. coming out with a victory, graciously to the thoughtfulness of Joy. The case was stipulated in half the time, which was very beneficial and most importantly: kept me protected. Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!”
