Same-Sex Marital Considerations & Domestic Partnerships

Same-Sex Marital Considerations & Domestic Partnerships
by lowndes

Although same-sex marriages are now recognized in Florida and nationwide, 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 same-sex and opposite-sex couples, creating domestic partnership agreements, joint property agreements, business agreements, powers of attorney, medical directives, wills and other documents designed to provide the legal security you deserve. As with any relationship, it is equally 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.
