Domestic Partners

Same Sex Domestic Partnership Agreements in California

California Domestic Partner laws extend to same-sex couples, similar rights and responsibilities currently enjoyed by married heterosexual couples.  These rights are essential to living life as a couple and family, to share healthcare and retirement benefits, make critical medical decisions, open joint banking accounts, inherit property and hold joint child custody.

California Domestic Partner law is not limited to same-sex couples.  Heterosexual couples where at least one partner is over the age of 62 may file.  Unmarried seniors wishing to register as domestic partners may consider the effect on existing written agreements between them which could be invalidated by the registration.
