Whether you have been served with divorce papers, have been considering filing for divorce, or are currently in the midst of navigating California’s divorce process, our lawyers at Cage & Miles can help guide your steps.

We understand that moving forward with a divorce can be one of the most momentous events for your family – especially for minor children. We work tirelessly to limit the impact that a divorce can have on young, impressionable children, as well as on your future, lifestyle, and finances.

What Kind of Divorce Cases Do We Handle?

Divorce is often highly contentious; even couples that may start the divorce process in a state of amicability can suddenly take a turn to combativeness or disagreement. We are devoted to guiding our clients in the most respectable way that limits court involvement and minimizes litigation exposure.

We can represent a wide range of divorce matters, including:

When it comes to complex divorce proceedings and other family-related legal matters, working with an attorney who lacks experience, depth, or knowledge can be greatly dangerous to you and your family.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce if Both Parties Agree in California?

It is difficult to know how long a contested divorce will take due to the complications that can arise. However, a divorce where both parties agree (an uncontested divorce) typically takes much less time. California does have a mandatory six-month waiting period, so a CA divorce will take at least six months to be finalized even if it is an uncontested divorce.

How Long Do You Have to Be Separated Before Divorce in CA?

Many no-fault divorce states require a couple to be separate for a period before they can file for divorce. While California is a no-fault divorce state, it does not have a separation requirement. A couple can file for divorce the day they decide they want to. Of course, the couple will still need to wait six months before the divorce is finalized.

How Much Does Divorce Cost in CA?

The cost of divorce in California will vary depending on the nature of the case. A more complicated case that takes longer to resolve will cost more due to the necessary legal fees. However, the base cost of divorce is the $435 filing fee. Each spouse will need to pay this fee.

Do I need an attorney to get divorced?

It is possible to file for divorce without an attorney; however, ending a marriage can be complicated. If you have financial assets or children, for example, getting legal guidance can help you protect your interests. Additionally, filing for divorce without a lawyer may become even more difficult if your spouse decides to hire one.
