Domestic Partnerships Your Divorce. Your Choices.

San Diego Domestic Partnership Lawyer

Secure Your Legal Rights

Close up of a woman holding hands with a man in San Diego.If you are part of a long-term and committed relationship, living together with your partner outside of marriage, there are certain legal protections that can be put in place to protect your interests. At Family Law San Diego, we help couples with issues related to domestic partnerships.

There are many potential benefits to establishing a domestic partnership:
  • Eligibility for your partner's health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Eligibility for death benefits
  • Eligibility for sick and bereavement leave if your partner gets sick
  • Eligibility for shared accident and life insurance

These are all vital parts of a long-term relationship that are traditionally only granted to marriages automatically. However, having an experienced San Diego family lawyer on your side can help you make a case for these benefits and protect you and your loved one's future.

Dissolving a Domestic Partnership

Since 1995, California law has required that domestic partnerships must be dissolved in a way similar to marital dissolution. This means that community property rules for division of marital property apply. Our domestic partnership attorneys are also well-versed in all types of complex property division matters.

If your long-term relationship is ending, let our attorneys share all of your options with you. Led by our board-certified family law specialist, Family Law San Diego can empower you to affirm your rights, fight for what is rightfully yours, and make clear and confident decisions about your situation.
