Request to invalidate
I ask the court to invalidate (annul) our domestic partnership because (check all that
apply):
[ ] We are close relatives who are not allowed to become registered domestic partners
under the law. (RCW 26.60.030)
[ ] We did not meet the age requirements for a domestic partnership because at the time
we registered (check all that apply):
[ ] one of us was under age 18.
[ ] we were both under age 62.
[ ] One or both of us was legally married to or the registered domestic partner of another
person at the time we registered our domestic partnership with each other.
[ ] At the time we registered, one or both of us was unable to understand what it meant
(lacked capacity to consent) either because of mental incapacity or the influence of
alcohol, drugs, or other substances. We did not voluntarily live together as a couple
(cohabit) after we both were able to understand and agree to be registered domestic
partners.
[ ] One of us agreed to become registered domestic partners because of pressure, force,
or fraud. We did not voluntarily live together as a couple (cohabit) after the pressure or
force stopped, or after finding out about the fraud.
[ ] We did not register our domestic partnership in Washington state. According to the
laws of the place where we registered our domestic partnership, our domestic
partnership is void or voidable. We have not done anything to validate our domestic
partnership according to the laws of:
 the place where we registered, or
 any place where we lived after leaving the place where we registered.

Jurisdiction over the partners
The court has personal jurisdiction over the domestic partnership because at least one of
the partners lives in Washington State, or is stationed in this state as a member of the
armed forces.
[ ] The court has jurisdiction over the Respondent because (check all that apply):
[ ] The Respondent lives in Washington State.
[ ] The Petitioner and Respondent lived in Washington State while they were
registered domestic partners, and the Petitioner still lives in this state or is
stationed in this state as a member of the armed forces.

Is one of the partners pregnant?

[ ] Exclusive, continuing jurisdiction – A Washington court has already made a
custody order or parenting plan for the children, and the court still has authority to
make other orders for (children’s names):
.
[ ] Home state jurisdiction – Washington is the children’s home state because
(check all that apply):
[ ] (Children’s names):

Washington with a parent or someone acting as a parent for at least the 6
months just before this case was filed, or if the children are less than 6

someone acting as a parent of the children still lives in Washington.
[ ] (Children’s names):
do not
have another home state.
[ ] No home state or home state declined – No court of any other state (or tribe)
has the jurisdiction to make decisions for (children’s names):

The children and a parent or someone acting as a parent have ties to
Washington beyond just living here; and
There is a lot of information (substantial evidence) about the children’s care,
protection, education and relationships in this state.
[ ] Other state declined – The courts in other states (or tribes) that might be (children’s
’s home state have
names):
refused to take this case because it is better to have this case in Washington.
[ ] Temporary emergency jurisdiction – The court can make decisions for

abused or threatened with abuse. (Check one):
[ ] A custody case involving the children was filed in the children’s home state
(name of state or tribe):

should take temporary emergency jurisdiction over the children until the
Petitioner can get a court order from the children’s home state (or tribe).
[ ] There is no valid custody order or open custody case in the children’s
home state (name of state or tribe):
. If no case is
filed in the children’s home state (or tribe) by the time the children have
been in Washington for 6 months, (date):
, Washington
should have final jurisdiction over the children.
