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?

  • To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement.

    “Divorce is not an experience that you look forward to. It's also messy and very stressful because of the emotions and people involved. For me, hiring a lawyer was a necessity not because I wanted to penalize my ex, but because I wanted an expert that would help me navigate the cumbersome process. To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement. She is a consummate professional with a solid reputation at the Chatsworth Courthouse. Initially, I tried to tackle the process myself by going to the self-help center and filling out the documents on my own. This turned out to be overwhelming. She took my case even though I had a pending DV case. I spoke with four lawyers prior to Joy who would not take my case because of the DV. She whipped through my paperwork in one meeting and told me my case could be brought to resolution with my help. I listened to her advice, asked millions of questions and continuously asked her and her legal secretary Marcos to clarify terms, rulings, and paperwork when I did not understand what was going on. I trusted Joy from the first meeting. I think that is really important; to trust the person that you are working with. She was exceptional to work with under the circumstances. I highly recommend Joy as she has the highest integrity and is very professional.”

  • I am grateful to have had Leyla represent me in such a complicated case.

    “On 05/2019 I was served with a frivolous civil restraining order. I was caught off guard and didn't know what to expect or what steps needed to be taken in order to clear this up. I began searching for attorneys online but I was hesitant to reach out to anyone. I wasn't sure anyone would take the time to fully understand my case as this was a complicated one. Thankfully, a family member referred me to Kraft Miles Law where I met Leyla. Leyla took the time to fully understand my case and quickly figured out the bad intentions of the other party. She thoroughly discussed what the plan would be and instantly gave me peace of mind as I knew I was in good hands. At my trial, Leyla informed me of what to expect along the way and made sure all evidence was presented as needed to help the judge make a fair decision. In the end, not only did Leyla help me win my case, but she also helped me get a court order where my attorney fees would be paid by the other party. I am grateful to have had Leyla represent me in such a complicated case. In the future, If I come across anyone that is in need of her services, I will make sure they reach out to Leyla.”

  • Got it done fast and easy.

    “Class A law firm, they helped me with a QDRO for a divorce and pension for my work. Got it done fast and easy. Thank you for your help!”

    Joe H.

  • They have been a pleasure to work with and I will always recommend them to anyone going through this process.

    “Joy and her team provided exceptional care to me and my case. As a young mother with a son under the age of 1 getting a divorce I was nervous and didn't know what to expect going in. In the end, I was left feeling happy and most importantly safe about the custody agreement that was negotiated and settled on. Joy was professional, caring, detailed, and went above and beyond even answering my questions or emails after hours of the firm. Her team continuously followed up with me regarding my concerns. They have been a pleasure to work with and I will always recommend them to anyone going through this process.”
