Advising You On Your Rights Under Still-Evolving Laws

The Washington state law allowing registration of domestic partnerships was passed in July 2007. This law, since modified and expanded, extends many of the rights of marriage to same-sex couples and cohabitating opposite-sex couples with one or both partners over age 62. Along with the many positive impacts of the law for same-sex couples and others, an inevitable consequence is that breaking up may involve more complex legal issues than before.

Protect Your Personal And Financial Future

We can advise you of the legal requirements for terminating your domestic partnership. More importantly, we will diligently examine the impact of this action on the division of property you and your partner own together, including complex assets.
