Same Sex Divorce and Domestic Partnerships

Whether you are registered domestic partners, legally married or both, we can help you dissolve your partnership or marriage efficiently. The domestic partnership process is similar to dissolving a marriage, so there can be a lot of steps to take. We can help you walk through them or complete them for you, based on the amount of support you need. (See Divorce Mediation, Individual Consultations, or Do-It-Yourself Divorce.)

Due to the complication of divorcing for same sex couples prior to the federal ruling Obergfell v. Hodges legalizing gay marriage, many states that permitted same-sex marriage also allowed non-resident same-sex couples to divorce. California allows non-resident same-sex married spouses to dissolve their marriage if they married in California and neither spouse lives in the state.
