When a California domestic partnership ends, the parties are required to file a termination of domestic partnership.

Same-sex couples registered as a domestic partnership who have children together are afforded the same rights and responsibilities given to a traditional/heterosexual families under California law.

  • Division of assets and debts
  • Child support and spousal support
  • Custody and visitation
  • Property division
  • Stepparent adoption
