According to the legal docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, “The parties intend to get married, so they must dissolve their registered domestic partnership.”

Leigh’s domestic partner — a writer named John Morton — filed the papers.  They registered as domestic partners in 2008.

Leigh — who also starred in “Peyton Place” — is 66.  She was formerly married to Ryan O’Neal and movie mogul Guy McElwaine.

So far, no word on when the couple plans to tie the knot.
