Domestic Partnership

This month we will be discussing two topics: California Domestic Partnership Rights and how these rights affect ownership rights (Title) of property.

California Domestic Partnership Act (Family Code Section 297) is defined as “two adults who have chosen to share their lives in an intimate/committed relationship of mutual caring.” This is established when both persons file a Declaration of Domestic Partnership with the Secretary of State.

The following requirements must be met before the Declaration may be approved:
* Both persons have a common residence, in that both domestic partners share the same residence. It is not necessary that the legal right to posses the common residence be in both of their names. Two people have a common residence even if one or both have additional residences. Domestic partners do not cease to have a common residence if one leaves the common residence but intends to return.
* Neither person is currently married or in another domestic partnership.
* Neither person is related by blood.
* Both persons are at least 18 years of age.
* Both persons are of the same sex (or) meet the eligibility criteria under US Social Security Act.

Rights of Domestic Partners
Registered Domestic Partners shall have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and shall be subject to the same responsibilities and duties under the law, whether they derive from administrative regulations or any source of law, as are granted to their spouses. This includes having a “vested” interest in real estate property.

Income Tax Returns
When filing state income tax returns, domestic partners should use the same filing status as is used on their federal income tax returns, or what would have been used had they filed federal income tax returns. Earned income may not be treated as community property for state income tax purposes.

Domestic Partnership Rights to Title
This is best described in an example: Two people are registered Domestic Partners. They own a home together however, only one of their names is on the title of the home. Suddenly, the partner named on the title passes away without a living Will. Where does this leave the surviving partner?

Happy Holidays!!
