non-traditional couples

Strategy. Protection. Solutions.
For unmarried couples and domestic partners

Non-traditional couples, Unmarried couples and domestic partners, share the same bond that married couples do but not in the eyes of the law. We know how to offer you that legal protection.

We begin by getting to know you, learning about your goals, retirement plans, how you want to own and manage property together, etc. After that, we’ll come up with solutions for you, such as the following:

  • protect your property rights with a property agreement, clarifying each agreement, clarifying each person’s financial obligations, how to divide or distribute the property if one person passes away, wants to sell or leave
  • protect your personal assets with a partnership agreement. Similar to a pre-nup, a partnership agreement defines such issues as how to divide up the furniture, who gets the pets, and support obligations in the event of a dissolution
  • protect your parental rights with a parenting agreement which defines your parenting plan and custody arrangements for your children in the event of a split

We’re passionate about working with domestic partners and unmarried couples. We enjoy being creative and strategic … putting all the puzzle pieces together in non-traditional ways … to make sure you are protected now and in the future. Call or email us to set up an appointment.
