Sound Advice & Advocacy from Pacific Cascade Family Law
According to Washington law, two adults may enter into a state-registered domestic partnership under certain circumstances. Historically, a domestic partnership was available to both same-sex and heterosexual couples. However, after the state legally recognized the validity of same-sex marriage, the requirements for state-registered domestic partnerships changed.
Under Washington law, domestic partnerships are only available to couples if:
- One partner is at least 62 years old
- Both partners are age 18 or older
- The partners live in the same residence
- Neither partner is married or in a domestic partnership with another person
- Both partners possess the capacity to consent to the domestic partnership
- The partners are not closely related by blood
