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?

  • I never felt like just another client.

    “Hiring Joy as my attorney was the best decision I could have made. I never felt like just another client. She took the time to explain everything and never made me feel like I was a bother. I have already recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so.”

    Former Client

  • I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease.

    “I met with Joy and she put my mind at ease. My biggest concern was my kids and being protected for our future. She guided me in what was to come and advised me that it's going to be a process with everything that myself and my husband had going on. She was willing to work with me and I truly appreciated that. She also let me know that for part of what I was going through, I didn't need a lawyer. She was trying to save me some money. Who does that nowadays? She was very sympathetic to my situation and showed that she really cared. Once my current situation is dealt with I will be going to her to file my divorce.”

    Susan

  • 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.”

    Former Client

  • You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter.

    “Joy Kraft Miles recently appeared on KABC radio's show So What's Your Problem? She gave great legal advice to our listeners, she is a very caring person! You can't do any better than Joy if you are facing or involved in any Family Law Matter........She's the best there is!!”

    Stan K.

  • 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.”
