We have been helping same-sex couples with relationship issues, adoptions, and other family law matters since long before California passed its domestic partnership or same-sex marriage laws.
The status of the state’s same-sex marriage law and of couples married under that law continues to be debated in the courts, in the legislature, and at the ballot box. In the meantime, the Domestic Partnership law continues in effect, granting many rights and obligations to domestic partners that are recognized in the law for married spouses.
We help domestic partners and same-sex couples who are dissolving relationships in cases of combined wealth or financial dependence. We are also experienced in Gender Identity cases and have handled divorces initiated while one spouse is transitioning from one gender to the other.
