Both parties wishing to form the Domestic Partnership must file a Declaration of Domestic Partnership with the Secretary of State (filing with the City or County will not suffice!) and both parties must meet the additional requirements of 1) Sharing a common residence; 2) not being blood related; and 3) not being in a marriage or domestic partnership with someone else.
A party may also obtain a quick and easy divorce if the spouse fails to file a response in the case and therefore defaults. The filing spouse serves their spouse with the Petition for Dissolution of marriage and if he or she does not respond with a formal Response to the court, then the case will proceed by default.
