What Rights Do I Have If I Am A Registered Domestic Partner? 02-21-2011

What Rights Do I Have If I Am A Registered Domestic Partner?

Pursuant to section 297.5 of the California Family Code, persons who are registered as a domestic partner shall have the same rights, protections, benefits and shall have the same obligations as those granted to and imposed upon spouses.

This means that statutes that are applicable regarding child support, child visitation, child custody, property division, etc. that affect married couples are also applicable to domestic partners.

If you or a loved one is seeking to terminate your domestic partnership, please contact our Rancho Cucamonga family law office. Our Rancho Cucamonga family law attorneys would like to sit down with you and discuss your options.
