How to Create a Domestic Partnership?

California domestic partnership law states that a couple is qualified to register as domestic partners under the following:

• They share a common dwelling;
• They concur to split basic living expenditures;
• They are not blood related;
• They are at least 18 years of age;
• They are share the same gender or they are of different sexes with one party being either over the age of 62 or entitled for Social Security old age benefits;
• They are able of giving legal permission.

The creation of a domestic partnership entails devotion to detail. Since California's domestic partnership statutes do not incorporate all of the rights, presumptions, and duties given to opposite-sex married individuals, couples starting a domestic partnership must take restraint to accept an arrangement which unmistakably expresses the legal rights of both individuals and the legal and financial effects should the partnership be terminated.
