Are you looking for a divorce in the state of California? If so, then you
need to make sure that you qualify. If you recently moved to the state
of California, you may need to go back to your original state in order
to get your divorce granted. This can be inconvenient, especially if you
need to make multiple court dates regarding your case.
If you decide that California is the place that you want to file, then
you will want to check and make sure that either you or your current spouse
has been a California resident for at least six months. Either you or
your spouse will also need to prove that you have resided in the county
where you want to file the divorce for at least three months. For example,
if you are planning on filing for divorce in Los Angeles, you will need
evidence that you have lived in Los Angeles for at least three months
to the date that you are filing.
This is so that only legal residents will be filing divorces in some of
the more popular courts. If you have recently moved, it may be wisest
for you to wait the time period required and then file for a divorce here
in California. You can also return back to your hometown, but because
a divorce can take anywhere from six months to one year this may be inconvenient
and irritating for you.
