What are the residency requirements for divorce in California? This is a question that must be asked prior to filing for a divorce. California requires that those seeking a divorce meet the residency requirements for the state of California. In California, “domicile” must be established in the state of California in order to file for divorce. Domicile is established when you are physically present in the state and have the intent to stay in the state indefinitely.
It is important to understand that this does not mean you are unable to visit other states, or travel. This signifies that at the time you file for divorce you are planning to remain in the state of California. If you are unsure if you meet the residency requirements you will want to speak with a family law attorney. The family law attorney will be able to discuss your divorce matter with you, and obtain all of the facts and information of your case in order to determine the appropriate jurisdiction for you to file your divorce matter.
