I am seeking a divorce with in California. My spouse is enraged and does not want to get a divorce. I don't even know where to start. We own a joint property and have a 4 year old daughter. Wondering what my options are at this point. I was involved in an affair before leaving but I also cared for our daughter for her first 2 years while my wife was away on travel and she is very attached to me. Where do I begin with this?
