We Can Help You Protect Your Best Interests In A Domestic Partnership Agreement

Through domestic partnership, same-sex and opposite-sex couples who live together can legally obtain some of the rights, privileges and protections that are given to married couples. These benefits, however, are not granted automatically and vary by state. If you are considering a domestic partnership, you may want to seek advice from a knowledgeable lawyer.

Whether you are looking to form, modify or dissolve a partnership, The Murphy Law Group is fully prepared to assist with your needs. We have experience with the legal issues of nontraditional families. We will meet with you to understand your situation and explain your options. Depending on your circumstance, options could include forming your partnership, establishing a cohabitation agreement, looking into adoption or legally ending the partnership.

Alimony requests can become a source of contention when dissolving a partnership agreement, which is all the more reason to seek legal counsel from an experienced, knowledgeable divorce lawyer.

We Have Experience Dealing With Cohabitation Agreements

A cohabitation agreement, also known as a living together agreement, is a contract that addresses how an unmarried couple will handle property and debts. Since divorce laws don’t apply to domestic partnerships, this document also can provide guidance for dividing assets if the relationship ends.

Attorney Stephanie Murphy is an experienced lawyer who helps clients with a variety of family law matters, including cohabitation and domestic partnership agreements. Using a personalized approach, she will advise you on the best solutions for your family, guide you through the legal process and address any questions or concerns you have along the way.
