Domestic Partnership Dissolution
Terminating a domestic partnership requires going through a dissolution proceeding, the same in most respects, as a divorce. Similar issues can arise in both contexts. Domestic partner or spousal support, child support, shared parenting arrangements, requests for attorneys’ fees, domestic violence and property division are issues that can arise in both divorces and domestic partnership dissolutions. Although the law treats domestic partnerships and marriages — heterosexual and same-sex — similarly, they are by no means the same in all contexts. Rather, certain issues merit careful attention. For example, the tax consequences of domestic partner support and division of property are difference in marriages and domestic partnership dissolutions.
