Best Answer

You would need to check with California Divorce Laws to see if after 6 months (or whatever time stipulation they have) in California you could file for Divorce there. It is who acts first that matters as they have the momentum and the jump in time on their side. You'll understand this more once you file for Divorce in California before he files in Florida.

as long as you reside in California you can. but if you have children together, you must file in the county in which the child support and/or custody was originally filed. sometimes you can get a transfer. check with your local county on their laws. it's a matter of county laws, not state.
