Domestic Partnership in Oregon
How do you get one?
Alrighty, to receive your Domestic Partnership in Oregon there are some criteria that must be met prior to filling out the form. And remember, you don't have the complete rights as if you were married, you have very limited rights for your same-sex relationship when you file your form associated with your domestic partnership.
Now let's get to the needed criterion:
- You both must be of the same sex. :-)
- Both must be at least 18 years of age.
- One of you must be a resident of Oregon.
- You both must be capable of filling out the forms and of entering into this partnership.
- Neither one of you can be married to anyone else or be in another domestic partnership.
- You can't be related by blood (Gross. Do I even need to mention that?)
- Lastly, you can't force or fraudulently make your partner enter into this domestic partnership.
And that about sums it up folks. Now onto registering your Domestic Partnership in Oregon.
No need to worry about this process, it's as easy as 1-2-3!
- You must fill out a
Declaration of Domestic Partnership form
completely in black or blue pen. (It must be printed out on 8 1/2 by 14 paper too, by the way.)
- This form must be notarized. So, do NOT sign the form until you both are in front of a notary.
- Now you just have to go to your
local County Clerk
and pay the required fee to have your form registered and to be made valid. (Check with your local County Clerk's Office for fee costs.)
Didn't I tell you that it was going to be easy? Yes, you are done now! Congrats on taking that next step and declaring your love for one another by registering as domestic partners!
