Local Law Firms Home > Divorce Family Law Overview > Domestic Partnership
Our lawyers represent clients and provide legal representation to same sex couples throughout the nation in addition to couples that simply choose not to be married but wish to be in a domestic partnership. These types of laws vary by state and situation, so it is important that all matters regarding a domestic partnership are addressed by a lawyer.
Because things can be more complicated and not quite clear since a domestic partnership is not a marriage, our lawyers can help couples that wish to either officially begin a domestic partnership or end one. Additionally, a family law attorney can represent you personally if you are having conflicts or disputes with your current domestic partner, such as issues arising from property and assets division, domestic violence, and much more. Our family law attorneys have experience handling an array of legal issues faced especially by gay and lesbian couples, including domestic partnership, and will work diligently to fight for your rights.
Did you know?
Domestic partner registration is a somewhat recent development that allows for same sex couples to enjoy many of the similar advantages as married couples.
Due to the fact that same sex marriages are not recognized by the majority of states throughout the country, there is no way by which to measure the relationship between gay and lesbian couples or the families they form.
