Attorneys for Domestic Partnership Dissolution
Generally, ending a domestic partnership or civil union is done in one of two ways: By filing a Notice of Termination of Domestic Partnership with the California Secretary of State or by obtaining a judgment from the Superior Court.
That said — ending a civil union or registered domestic partnership is very similar to divorce in that domestic partners must come to an agreement on matters such as child custody and visitation, property division, and support before the dissolution can be granted. This area of law is going through significant changes. Our attorneys are very experienced in these areas and can help you.
At Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson, our lawyers have the skill and experience needed to represent both same-sex couples and “traditional” couples effectively in these and all family law matters. To put our experience and resources to work for you — simply call or e-mail our offices today for a free telephone consultation with an attorney.
What the Law Applies to and What to Expect
Generally, California’s domestic partnership laws relate to issues of benefits and decision-making in areas such as:
- Parental relationships
- Property rights
- Spousal support rights
- Child support rights
- Health insurance

Once you’ve determined which issues are most important and set your goals, you can rely on us to keep you fully informed throughout the case and to represent your interests as aggressively as we would in any divorce case.
