Dissolution of Domestic Partnership

California law recently changed to allow domestic partners the rights to obtain dissolution, legal separation and annulments. At The Montes Law Firm, our legal team provides comprehensive family law representation for domestic partners.

We are directed by Orange County domestic partnership lawyer Amy M. Montes, who has established a reputation in the legal community for her holistic approach to legal issues. Her approach enables her to balance aggressive representation while helping clients achieve their goals and obtain favorable results.
