Domestic partnership termination

Pennsylvania residents who are thinking of ending their domestic partnership may wish to know what steps they must take to do this. The complexity of the termination depends on the longevity of the relationship, property acquired during the partnership and whether there are children. Many times, the requirements to terminate the partnership are listed in the paperwork filed when the arrangement was established.

Same-sex couples face child-custody challenges

When same-sex couples with children separate in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, they may face obstacles to establishing child support, visitation and custody. Many LGBT couples have their children through assisted fertilization or adoption; the result is that one or both parents might not be biological parents of the children. When a domestic partnership ends, the non-biological parent will be at a disadvantage.

Same-sex marriage now recognized in Pennsylvania

In May 2014, Pennsylvania joined several neighboring states in recognizing the right of same-sex couples to marry in its jurisdiction. One day after a judge struck down the state's Defense of Marriage Act, the governor announced that he would not appeal the judge's ruling. Couples who had previously entered into civil unions or domestic partnerships may now apply for marriage licenses. If a couple was married in another state that allows same-sex marriage, Pennsylvania will now recognize that marriage within its own borders.
