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.
To file for divorce, one spouse must have lived in California for the last six months, and the county where the action is filed for the last three months. Spouses who have lived in California for at least six months, but in different counties for at least three months can file in either county. These California residency requirements must be met in order for the court to have jurisdiction of the case.
