Same-Sex Marital Considerations & Domestic Partnerships
What if I’m in a relationship but not married? What if I’m in a same-sex marriage?
Although same-sex marriages are recognized in Florida and elsewhere, there are several steps you can – and should – take to protect your relationship whether or not you are married. If you entered into agreements meant to protect your same-sex relationship arrangement in a pre-marriage environment, we can help you understand how those arrangements have been affected by the changes to marriage laws and what steps you might want to take in a world where same and opposite sex marriages are treated equally.
Our attorneys have worked with numerous couples to create domestic partnership agreements, joint property agreements, business agreements, powers of attorney, medical directives, wills and other documents designed that provide the legal security you deserve. In any relationship, it is important to create a roadmap for dissolution, in the unfortunate event of a break-up – through which we guide our clients with strength and compassion.
