San Diego Divorce Law and Jurisdiction

0:00:01.8 Speaker 1: Hi. I'm Roy Doppelt of Doppelt and Forney, APLC. Divorce in San Diego Superior Court can be either fairly simple or can be very complex. The first issue is, do you have jurisdiction to file a divorce in San Diego Superior Court? In order to have jurisdiction, you must have been a resident of the state of California for at least six months, and a resident of the county for at least three months, or your spouse must have been in order to file for a divorce.

This is very important because the forum or jurisdiction where your divorce is can make a big difference. San Diego, California is a no­fault divorce state. However, some states do not have exactly the same laws as California. As your case is unique to you, it is very important to have an accurate legal analysis.

Our law firm would be pleased to offer you a complimentary consultation up to 30 minutes to discuss your individual case.
