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?

  • The attorneys at this office under the supervision of Ms. Kraft have provided our family with professional and kind representation.

    “I have personally referred friends and, I take a moment to recommend this office commenting that the quality of attorney work-product and, client communications are excellent.”

    D.L.

  • Mrs. Miles's ability to derive a solution along with her knowledge of the legal process was the key to allowing me to be the father I was prior to the separation.

    “I met Mrs. Miles because I needed help regarding a child custody case. Prior to obtaining Mrs. Miles, I dealt with another attorney for 15 months and was not making forward progress. Mrs. Kraft listened to my needs, requested a copy of my file, prepared the necessary documents and informed me of our court date. When we went to court she represented me in a FAR SUPERIOR way than my prior council. Due to the number of complications/errors on behalf of previously involved parties the documentation Mrs. Miles drafted was very thorough addressing all aspects of my case. We achieved the desired results within a couple months (3-4) and there were no needs for repetitive visits to the courthouse. Mrs. Miles's ability to derive a solution along with her knowledge of the legal process was the key to allowing me to be the father I was prior to the separation.”

    Former Client

  • She was tough as nails where needed and tender and compassionate to everyone involved.

    “Joy represented me in a case to solidify child support and adjust the visitation schedule for my 12-year-old son. She had the difficult task of helping two very different parents with very different value systems come to an agreement that would best benefit the child. She was tough as nails where needed and tender and compassionate to everyone involved. Above all, she was a huge blessing in helping me see the situation from the perspective that kept my child as the priority and very thorough and detailed to explore every option available. My son is better off because of her diligence in this case. I am very grateful to her for her services and expertise in family law.”

    Yvonne

  • Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach.

    “I am a baby boomer who found himself in a legal battle for my children (infant twins). There were many issues that weighed against me getting custody of my children.

    1. My age vs. the mother's age.
    2. The fact that I live on the east coast.
    3. There were paternity issues.
    4. A lot of accusations made against me which were not true.
    5. A move away order to another country.

    Just to name a few.

    I felt overwhelmed and lost for 8 months and did not know if I was going to be able to get my children or ever see them again. Through it all, Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her team stayed the course and amassed all of the documentation to prove that the truth was not being told by the mother. They presented a defense that was structured and exact. While opposing counsel was not as prepared. Their hard work paid off, I now have custody of my children. Opposing counsel also was asking for an ungodly amount of money, they wanted me to pay for her legal fees. That was also taken off the table because of the amount of work and fact-finding by Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her firm. The entire firm from her Mother on down makes you feel like family, which I have to tell you made this a lot easier for me. Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach. If you ever find yourself up against a wall and you don't know where to turn look no further than Attorney Joy Kraft Miles.

    Samuel
