Contemplating Divorce?

Annette Brown, CDFA & Divorce Coach, offers expert financial support and consulting during one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life, upon the impending dissolution of your marriage or business partnership.

AB & Associates offers Strategic Planning Guidance Services to individuals and their attorneys and small businesses, offering expert financial support and consulting for dissolving the financial aspects of your marriage or business partnerships.

California is a Community Property State 

All wages earned by a registered domestic partner while living in California is community property, as is any real or personal property acquired with such wages or existing community property or community debt. Both partners are entitled equally to manage and control all community property.

Registered Domestic Partners

The State Bar of California offers a comprehensive guide to setting up, managing and dissolving a Registered Domestic Partnership.

Can You End a Domestic Partnership?

Yes. Unlike a marriage that must go through the divorce process, a domestic partnership in California can be ended by filing a Notice of Termination through their local secretary of state. Most likely, partners will have to go through a dissolution process in court.
