Clear Counsel In Domestic Partnership Issues

Even though they do not share the same laws and benefits of married couples, unmarried couples in a domestic partnership still struggle with many of the same challenges. It is our goal to guide you through the planning and preparation necessary to alleviate as many obstacles in your relationship as possible.

A cohabitation agreement or domestic partnership agreement can accomplish many of the same goals of a premarital agreement. At Seder & Chandler, LLP, our lawyers have decades of combined experience helping unmarried couples as they plan for their future.

Our law firm can also advise you if you want to transition from a same-sex domestic partnership to a legally recognized marriage. Let us explain the legal ramifications and address any concerns you may have.
