I'm trying to find out if I'm no longer married
If you haven't been involved in a marital dissolution or divorce case, you are still married. If you have, you need to go online or in person to the court in which your case was heard to see if judgement was entered in the case and, if so, whether your marriage was terminated. If there isn't a court judgment terminating your marriage you are also still married.
If both you and your spouse reside in San Diego County, the quickest way to check is online. Go to the San Diego Superior Court's website (www.sdcourt.ca.gov), select the 'Family' category, select 'view case information', select 'smart search', then enter either your case number (if you have it) or either party's name. An index of the documents filed in your case will appear and you're looking for a 'Judgment' and a 'Notice of Entry of Judgment'. These entries on the court's website are signs that your marital status has been dissolved. To be absolutely certain, you will want to go in person to the court's Records Department and obtain a hard copy of those two documents, which should indicate the date on which your marital status was dissolved.
