Registered Domestic Partnerships

If you are considering entering into a California registered domestic partnership or need to terminate an existing domestic partnership, obtaining legal advice before going forward is imperative. Although domestic partnerships share many features of traditional marriage in California, there are a number of key differences, particularly if another state is involved or if the issues relate to federal law. It is an unfortunate fact that many other jurisdictions, both state and federal, will not recognize or enforce the rights and responsibilities conferred upon domestic partners under California law.

I can help in exploring the options available to you in the legal process and provide you with the information needed to make the necessary decisions pertaining to your particular case.
