How can domestic partners get divorced in California?
So you’ve already agreed that the California courts have the jurisdiction to conclude your domestic partnership if it was registered in California.
And this is still true if you relocate or if you haven’t ever lived in California.
All in all, domestic partners are not obliged to meet married couple residency requirements.
However, if the domestic partnership was registered elsewhere, the following requirements must be met. So you or your partner must have resided in California for the past 6 months. In addition to this, you/your partner must have lived in the county where you’re filing for divorce for the past three months.
