What is a domestic partnership?
A domestic partnership is a long-term relationship between same-sex individuals over the age of 18 or heterosexual relationships in which at least one member is 62 or older. If both members of a same-sex couple are under 18, they can still seek a domestic partnership, but the court requires written permission from their parents or legal guardians first. Couples must also share a residence to be granted domestic partnership status in California.
How to terminate a domestic partnership
To terminate an existing domestic partnership, you may need to fill out a Notice of Termination of Domestic Partnership form with the California Secretary of State. You can also dissolve the partnership in Superior Court in some cases. Our family law attorneys examine the circumstances of your case and advise you regarding the most efficient course of action to terminate your partnership.
