Same-Sex Divorce

Same-sex marriage is now recognized under California law. The state also acknowledges registered domestic partnerships that affords you similar rights and responsibilities. Fernandez & Karney are experienced with California domestic partnership & same-sex divorce laws and proficient with the family law statutes regarding these issues.

California’s Domestic Partner Rights and Responsibilities Act of 2003 went into effect on January 1, 2005. It reflects that couples registering their domestic partnerships with the State of California are afforded similar, but not the same, rights and responsibilities to those granted to opposite-sex couples whose marriages were registered with the State.

Domestic Partnerships

Some situations involve creating a union-such as registering a domestic partnership or ensuring your partner is included in your will. Other situations can occur when a domestic partnership or same-sex marriage ends-such as dividing property and deciding upon custody of the children.

Fernandez & Karney can assist with the following:

  • Creating registered domestic partnerships
  • Divorce for same-sex couples that were legally married in California
  • Dissolution of domestic partnerships
  • Division of marital/partnership property and debt
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Modification of child custody, visitation and child support orders

Whether you are currently married, are interested in creating a registered domestic partnership or have decided to end your relationship, we can help you through every step of this potentially challenging process.
