Domestic Partnerships

nicole fraser domestic partnership attorney san jose california

Divorce in a same-sex or same-gender relationship (also known as a domestic partnership) is handled in the same manner as a marital divorce case. The rights of domestic partners parallel the rights of those in marital families. However, there may be a higher degree of uncertainty regarding the rights of the non-biological parent in a child custody case.

 Nicole Fraser can help you with issues pertaining to domestic partnership law with regard to both domestic partnership formation and domestic partnership termination.  If you are a same-gender couple considering entering into a domestic partnership agreement, we inform you of your options and legal rights, enabling you to make the right decision for you and your relationship. We can file the necessary paperwork to register you as domestic partners with the Secretary of State.   Although not the same as gay marriage, it does help secure partners’ rights.
