Ramona is located near the intersection of State Route 67 and State Route 78. Because Ramona is not an incorporated city, there are no city limits by which to measure its area. The Ramona Community Planning Area consists primarily of the Santa Maria Valley and the San Vicente Valley, as well as the mountainous terrain surrounding them. The area also includes the Ballena Valley east of town and Bandy Canyon and a small portion of the southern edge of the San Pasqual Valley. Dairies used to be common in Ramona, particularly along Dye Road, Ramona Street and Warnock Road. Today, one dairy remains on Dye Road and one on Warnock. The cost of importing water to Ramona has become a negative issue in recent years but Avocado and Citrus orchards are still prominent.
There is a Ramona branch court located on 1428 Montecito Road. This courthouse is mostly utilized for traffic, civil and small claims cases, and other minor offenses occurring near Ramona and the north-eastern part of San Diego County.
Many Ramona residents have significant acreage and square foot houses. A knowledgeable Ramona family law firm can help with the division of a residence or a buy out if required. There are two options for the division of a residence in a legal separation or divorce in Ramona. First, the residence can be sold and the proceeds divided minus any separate property claims. Second, the residence may be bought out by one spouse. In a buy out, normally, an appraisal is conducted to determine the value. Then the spouse who is buying out will refinance the residence in their name along and the spouse who is being bought out will sign an interspousal transfer deed releasing their interest and then the equalizing payment is made and can be made from escrow during the refinancing. A house can be a very contentious issue since many times parents do not want to move their children to another house during the divorce or immediately after.
