California partners who are not married may opt to establish a legal domestic partnership to protect their rights and reinforce their commitment to each other. At Yelman & Associates, our San Diego domestic partnership attorneys understand the many reasons unmarried partners may wish to create a legal relationship as defined under the California Family Code. An official domestic partnership provides security and peace of mind for each party; it also provides legal rights to each partner, similar to that of married couples. The same confidence is extended to partners who may be in the midst of difficulties and who seek termination of their existing relationship.
The California Family Code defines domestic partnership in Section 297. The important aspect of this law is that unmarried persons of the same sex or those over 62 of the same or opposite sex can establish that their relationship meets the criteria of this law. Entering into any type of legal relationship that involved filing documents with the State should be done with the assistance of knowledgeable legal representation. Domestic partnership attorneys at Yelman & Associates understand these requirements and can expedite your legal quest for recognition of or dissolution of your relationship.
The California Family Code provides, in Division 2.5, Sections 297–299, rules that apply to domestic partnership:
Domestic partnership is an important legal status that helps committed partners legitimize their relationship status.
