Domestic Partnerships

Domestic Partnership Dissolutions & Disputes

The state of California recognizes the right of same sex and certain other couples to form a domestic partnership as long as specific requirements are satisfied.  Once a domestic partnership has been formed and registered with the California Secretary of State, the members of that domestic partnership have the same rights, protections, and benefits of marriage under state law. 

Domestic partners who wish to dissolve their domestic partnership generally must file Petition for Dissolution proceedings in the appropriate family court, potentially giving rise to issues of child custody, child visitation, child and partner support, and division of property and allocation of debts, among others. 

Even if a same-sex couple has not formed a domestic partnership, circumstances may arise in which legal proceedings may be needed to address claims regarding property and debts, in addition to requests for rehabilitative support, among others.
