Dear Ms. Basciano,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
To obtain a divorce record in the State of California, please contact the clerk of the Superior Court of the county where the divorce was filed. A list of the 58 Superior Courts is available at https://www.courts.ca.gov/superiorcourts.htm.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family search!
According to the 1940 census Pearly worked as a janitor at the State Capitol, you might be able to find your answer there if they still have his records. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K94P-KQV
