Gainesville Domestic Partnership Agreement Attorneys
A domestic partnership agreement is a valuable document for both same-sex couples whose marriages are not recognized by Florida law and for heterosexual couples who do not wish to be married. These agreements afford couples many, but not all, of the benefits that come along with a state-recognized marriage. Because such agreements encompass a wide range of family law issues, it is important to have legal counsel guide you through this process.
At the law firm of Arroyo & Talbert, P.A., our Gainesville lawyers have extensive experience helping couples craft and enter into a domestic partnership agreement. We can help you protect your interests and afford you the peace of mind that comes with entering into a legal agreement.
What a Domestic Partnership Agreement Can Do for You
A domestic partnership agreement can help you and your partner reach a contractual resolution for a number of different legal needs, including property division and child custody arrangements, should your partnership ever come to an end. It is important to note that a partnership agreement should not take the place of estate planning documents such as a will. A partnership agreement is best for couples who cannot or choose not to be married, but nonetheless wish to have some legal rights conferred upon their relationship.
Partnership Agreements and Legal Separation
A domestic partnership agreement is a legal document that creates legal responsibilities between the parties. If your relationship comes to an end, it is necessary to seek a legal separation from the court. You must also carry out your obligations under the terms of your agreement. Our attorneys can help you if you need a separation agreement or if your ex is not complying with the terms of your partnership agreement.
