CIVIL UNIONS AND DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIPS
JURSIDICTIONS OTHER THAN NEW JERSEY
The State of New Jersey and the Division of Pensions and Benefits recognizes certain Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships established in jurisdictions other than New Jersey. Whether these relationships are viewed as civil unions or as domestic partnerships with reference to New Jersey Law (Chapter 103, P.L. 2006, and Chapter 246, P.L. 2003) is dependent on whether the laws of the other jurisdiction provide benefits which are, or are not, substantially equivalent to marriage.
Due to the evolving nature of civil union and domestic partnership legislation,
the following lists may not indicate all jurisdictions recognized by the Division of Pensions and Benefits.
