15. Is the dissolution process the same for registered domestic partners?

Yes, for the most part, as long as your domestic partnership has been registered with the State of
California. You may want to seek a family law attorney's advice before reaching any agreements. In
addition, you should be aware that federal law does not recognize registered domestic partnerships,
which means that tax laws do not apply to domestic partners and married couples in the same way. If
partner support is an issue or you own property, you also may want to consult a tax specialist.

Note: A 2008 state Supreme Court ruling legalized same-sex marriage, which may eliminate the need
for many domestic partnerships in the future.
