Scripps Ranch is an inland community located in the north east of San Diego, California. Located east of Interstate 15 and north of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Scripps Ranch has unique landscaping most accentuated by its population of mature Eucalyptus trees. Recreational boating and fishing are available at Miramar Reservoir, located within Scripps Ranch.
Scripps Ranch residents would typically use the Family Court on 1555 Sixth Avenue. This court has jurisdiction over all cases involving child support and custody, as well as matters pertaining to dissolutions of marriage. In addition there are two family law courtrooms at the Madge Bradley Courthouse on 1409 Fourth Avenue which hear divorce cases and domestic violence restraining orders.
Doppelt and Forney, APLC, has represented spouses who resided in Scripps Ranch. Scripps Ranch is an affluent area of San Diego and the values of homes are high. Many live in Scripps Ranch due to the excellent quality of the schools which means, for a paternity, divorce or legal separation case, that where the children go to school when the parents are not living together becomes an issue if one is going to move out of Scripps Ranch to a location [such as Carlsbad] where a daily commute to school and back becomes untenable for both the parent and children. During marriage, parents control where their child or children live and what schools they go to and all manner of other decisions. When a legal separation, divorce or paternity case is filed in San Diego Superior Court, then the Court has jurisdiction [power and authority] over custody and visitation as well as support and division of assets and debts et al. This process can be devastating if one parent feels disenfranchised from their children and can lead to litigation and not settlement. Of course, when parents are not living together, it is not possible for both parents to spend 100% of the time with their children as they did when they were cohabitating.
