You cannot claim HOH, as dependent is not related to you.

You can claim you partner as a dependent, but you would not be eligible for Head of Household. A domestic partner does not qualify as a "qualifying relative" to obtain head of household status.

You cannot claim HOH, but if you provided more than half the disabled partner's expenses, then you may claim him as a dependent.  If the other domestic partner has contributed to the disabled one's expenses, you might not meet the 50% requirement.

This is incorrect. The partner is eligible to be a dependent.
