Domestic partnerships have some similarities to the rights and responsibilities that spouses have to each other. However, the advantages and benefits can differ between the two. Domestic partners can receive both financial and non-financial benefits from their partners.

These benefits may include:

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Accident insurance
  • Death benefits
  • Housing benefits
  • Sick and bereavement leave

Domestic partnerships in California often go through the dissolution process as marriages do. Couples must shift their focus and compromise on matters such as child support, child custody, property division, alimony, as well as the payment of debts. That said, it is critical to have a Westlake Village family law attorney provide you with the necessary legal support, as well as the compassionate, caring support to assist you with your domestic partnership case.
