What Does it Mean?

Civil union property refers to all property acquired by either partner in a civil union.

Things You Should Know

An item is considered civil union property only if it was acquired AFTER the civil union was formed. This date can be found on your civil union license.

Some items CAN'T be civil union property. These include: 

  • gifts or inheritances
  • property excluded in a prenup or another valid agreement
  • property acquired before the civil union; or
  • any property acquired while legally separated
