How We Can Help with a Domestic Partnership Agreement
Domestic partnership agreements can be tailored to meet your specific needs. For example, if you and your partner want to enter into a domestic partnership agreement to ensure the relationship is going to work out, you can set terms in the agreement that can change with time.
If you want to enter into a domestic partnership agreement to ensure that you and your partner maintain your separate wealth and property in the event the relationship is terminated, that can also be arranged.
We can assist couples with a domestic partnership agreement, including the following:
- Drafting a domestic partnership agreement
- Reviewing a domestic partnership agreement
- Litigating issues arising out of a domestic partnership agreement
Domestic partnership agreements can be entered into before a relationship (similar to a pre-nuptial agreement) or entered into after a relationship has been established (similar to a post-nuptial agreement).
We also handle domestic partnership adoptions whether it is a joint adoption, adoption of a partner’s child or through surrogacy.
