Can I File for Divorce in California?

What Are the Residency Requirements to File for Divorce in California?
When filing for divorce in California, there are unique residency requirements that must be met. You must meet these state-specific requirements prior to filing with your Superior Court of California of your county. The California residency requirements are as follows:

A judgment of dissolution of marriage may not be entered unless one of the parties to the marriage has been a resident of this state for six months and of the county in which the proceeding is filed for three months next preceding the filing of the petition.

For the purpose of a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, the husband and wife each may have a separate domicile or residence depending upon proof of the fact and not upon legal presumptions.

The Dissolution of Marriage is typically filed with in county in which the filing spouse lives. (California Code - Sections: 297, 298, 2320, 2339)

According to the State of California divorce laws, if you DO NOT meet at least one of the residency requirements listed above, you have the following options:

How Do I Prove Residency in California?
To file for divorce in California, the petitioner must be a resident of the state of 6 months and a resident of the county he or she is filing in for 3 months prior to the filing. To prove residency in California, your driverโ€™s license or state identification card with your current address is often sufficient. An affidavit signed by a third party testifying that the petitioner lived in California for 6 months and the county for 3 months also is accepted. You can also provide a current California voter registration, tax returns (with current California address), pay stubs or letter from your employer verifying your address and employment, bank account information with a California bank, utility bill, car registration or insurance (with a California company), property tax bill, or California public library membership as long as you have a verified letter from the library on letterhead and signed. You can also show any union membership for a local California union, military papers, or if you receive California state aid or welfare.
