Can you move states during a divorce?
In California, at least one party must be a resident of the state and county where the divorce is filed. If you move out of state before the divorce is filed or while the case is pending, you can still handle the case in a California court if your spouse continues to meet the residency requirements.
How does moving out affect divorce?
Moving out before a divorce is finalized can cause major financial problems, particularly if children are involved. Additionally, they can frequently end up stuck with child support payments before the divorce is finalized because they have less overnight time with the kids.
What happens if your divorce goes into default?
A divorce by default occurs when the person who files for divorce does not receive a timely response from the other spouse. You can't take back or rescind the divorce once the courts have finalized it, even if the defendant never received the petition and did not know a spouse filed for divorce.
