California Divorce Laws

In order to successfully file for a dissolution of marriage in California, first off, you must meet the basic residency requirements in order for your case to be accepted and then heard by the court. Doing so is very important because in the event that the court discovers that it does not have the jurisdictional rights to hear your divorce case, it will eventually be dismissed.

According to Land Whitmarsh LLP the requirements looked into by the courts include the fact that:

a. A judgment of dissolution of marriage will never be entered unless one of the parties involved in the marriage has proof of being a resident of the state for at least 6 months as well as being a resident of the country in which the proceedings have been filed in for at least 3 months before the date of filing the petition.

b. For the sake of a proceeding for a dissolution of marriage, both parties in the marriage in question are free to have separate residences taking into consideration proof of the fact and not necessarily upon legal based presumptions.
