Filing for Divorce in Sacramento County

Residency Requirements for Divorce in California

When seeking a divorce in the state of California, it is important to know what’s required of you and your spouse. For instance, you must be a California resident for at least six months prior to filing for divorce, and you must spend three of those months living in the county in which you’d like to file. The earliest a California court may grant your divorce is six months after the non-filing spouse is served with the petition.

What Grounds for Divorce Does California Recognize?

In the state of California, it is important that you demonstrate sufficient proof to the court that your marriage is beyond repair and in need of dissolution. Since California is a “no-fault” state, you need not demonstrate that either you or your spouse engaged in any sort of “wrongdoing.”

Early Planning for Divorce 

Before divorce papers are even filed, it is important that you take steps to prepare and plan for what comes next. Individuals should assess their financial resources, living expenses, custody or visitation issues, and other potential strategies with the help of an attorney. Your Sacramento divorce lawyer can provide insight into how to effectively manage your divorce while protecting you in the event a safety concern arises, such as instances of domestic violence.
