Defining Family Law

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

Domestic issues make for some of the most delicate, stressful, and contentious legal proceedings. Some cases can be resolved amicably, but many disputes require experienced legal counsel. That’s because questions of marriage and divorce almost always involve complicated legal concerns in addition to sensitive personal matters.

Our San Fernando Valley family lawyers assist clients with matters involving:

Grounds for Divorce in California

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?

  • 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.”

    Melvin

  • The entire crew is quick to respond to my emails and I am always made to feel like a priority.

    “Joy and the incredible staff at Kraft Miles are currently helping me with an unpleasant divorce. While the intricacies of an acrimonious separation can be overwhelming, Joy and Brigitte have done an excellent job of explaining the process step by step and answering all my questions. The entire crew is quick to respond to my emails and I am always made to feel like a priority. In court, Joy is a true professional and a class act that has guided me through this difficult time with great success. I have complete trust and confidence in her extensive knowledge and experience of family law matters”

    Michelle A.

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

    S.M.

  • 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.”
