Domestic Partnerships in Ontario, California
Establishing Domestic Partnerships

Honest Answers for Your Family
When you register your intent for partnership in the state of California, your relationship will fall under the same family code as a marriage. You will be subject to the same laws regarding support, custody, and the division or property should you decide in the future to end your domestic partnership.
We work with couples who are already domestic partners and couples who would like to become registered domestic partners. Once domestic partnership is established, both parties have the same rights as traditionally married couples and have the right to domestic violence restraining orders.
The process of obtaining a domestic partnership is much like the process of obtaining a marriage license. There are forms that must be signed by both parties, and once all the paperwork is done, the partnership is set.
It is also important to understand that domestic partnerships are for same sex couples only. They are available to gay and lesbian partners, because they cannot be legally married. For that reason, domestic partnerships are not available to opposite sex couples.
