Domestic Partnerships in Pembroke Pines

Helping Couples Secure their Legal Rights

Due to recent changes in both federal and state laws, gay and lesbian couples can now legally marry. However, as these changes are recent and likely to adjust over time, a domestic partnership agreement may be a worthwhile option prior to walking down the aisle. The Pembroke Pines family attorney at the Law Office of Jerome P. Ventura has over 25 years of experience helping same sex couples secure their legal rights.

Why Choose a Domestic Partnership Agreement?

In many ways, a domestic partnership agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement. By drafting it, you are not saying you expect the relationship to end—you are merely putting clear expectations in place in case things don't work out. In cases of separation, same-sex couples face many of the same issues that heterosexual couples face such as owning property and caring for children. In these cases, it is a good idea to get a lawyer's help in drafting a domestic partnership agreement that spells out each party's rights and obligations.

These agreements may include:

  • How property will be divided upon a potential dissolution of the partnership
  • Whether one party is entitled to support payments and for how long
  • If there are children, how custody, time-share and child support will be shared
