The differences between legally ending a marriage and dissolving a domestic partnership are not substantial.

Effective Legal Counsel for Dissolving Domestic Partnerships

Washington courts recognize similar rights for domestic partnerships and marriages regarding community property. Domestic partners are not required to prove fault as a prerequisite for dissolving the partnership. If you are considering ending your domestic partnership, Pacific Cascade Family Law can help you.

We have experience handling the following issues that typically arise when dissolving a domestic partnership:

  • Dividing community property interests
  • Child custody issues
  • Parenting plans

Sound Advice & Advocacy from Pacific Cascade Family Law

According to Washington law, two adults may enter into a state-registered domestic partnership under certain circumstances. Historically, a domestic partnership was available to both same-sex and heterosexual couples. However, after the state legally recognized the validity of same-sex marriage, the requirements for state-registered domestic partnerships changed.

Under Washington law, domestic partnerships are only available to couples if:

  • One partner is at least 62 years old
  • Both partners are age 18 or older
  • The partners live in the same residence
  • Neither partner is married or in a domestic partnership with another person
  • Both partners possess the capacity to consent to the domestic partnership
  • The partners are not closely related by blood
