Yes, regardless of what state you and your spouse were married in, you can file for divorce in California so long as you meet the proper residency requirements. When filing for divorce in California, either you or your spouse must have been a resident of California for at least six (6) months prior to commencing the divorce proceedings within the state. Additionally, you or your spouse must have resided within the county where your divorce will take place for at least three (3) months prior to the filing of your divorce. These residency requirements ensure that California and the county superior court you open your case in have jurisdiction to make order in your case, including the ability to order a divorce.
