When two persons of the “same sex,” wish to join together but do not wish to marry, they might become domestic partners. If you are in a domestic partnership, and you wish to dissolve your domestic partnership, you may proceed in a similar manner as though you were in marital relationship and have similar rights and responsibilities as though you were spouses. In some instances, there is a simplied procedure available for dissolution of your domestic partnership (just as between spouses, in some instances, there is a simplied summary procedure available).
There are many ways to obtain assistance through this process. There are self-help clinics, non-profit organizations, private attorneys, tax-payer based family law services, mental health professionals, mediators, arbitrators, parenting coaches, accountants, friends, family, internet resources, books, periodicals, State Bar of California resources, document preparers, school officials, and law enforcement agencies.
