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.
California divorce laws recognize that both spouses make valuable contributions to any marriage regardless of their employment. Property is labeled either "community property" or "separate property." Community property is all property, in or out of the state, that either spouse acquired during the marriage. Each spouse owns one-half of all community property. It does not matter if only one spouse worked outside of the home during the marriage or if this property is in only one spouse's name.
