Protect your domestic partnership's rights

You've entered into a mutually agreed domestic partnership, but don't know what should be done to make sure the relationship - same sex or otherwise - is recognized, protected legally, and that both partners are also afforded certain legal rights in the state of California. In August of 2013, the U.S. Supreme court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act that prohibited same-sex marriages or domestic partnerships - regardless of the partners' sex - from entitlement to Federal spousal rights, such as immigration rights, Social Security, and Federal tax laws. We can help you file the papers for your domestic partnership for legal recognition, dissolve a domestic partnership, help with the adoption of children, tax issues, property, trusts, and more.

Make sure your wishes are known

Your domestic partnership is afforded many, if not all, of the rights and entitlements as legal marriages, so you'll want to be sure that your partner is taken care of in the event of a tragedy or death.
