All of these matters can have a massive impact on your future. That is why it is important to have an experienced and certified family law specialist you can trust on your side throughout the process.

Residency Requirements for a California Divorce

California Family Code § 2320 outlines the residency requirements for a couple who wishes to get a divorce in California.

The residency requirements are as follows:

  • One spouse must have resided in the state for a minimum of six months.
  • That spouse must have resided in the county where the divorce is filed for at least three months.

Exceptions to this rule exist for marriages being annulled, legal separation, and those in a same-sex civil union or domestic partnership. While the Defense of Marriage act has been overturned, allowing for same-sex marriage and divorce in any state, couples who opted for a civil union or domestic partnership arrangement before the historic ruling can still run into legal issues when separating.

Those in a same-sex non-marriage partnership must have entered into their formal relationship in California in order to apply for divorce. In some cases, if a same-sex couple’s current state of residency refuses to grant the divorce, then California may grant it instead.
