Children and Divorce: The Most Important Issues
Beginning October 1, 2009, Nevada adopted a law allowing for the registration of domestic partners. Pursuant to this law, two people can enter into a domestic partnership in the state of Nevada allowing them to benefit from many of the same rights as married couples. The experienced family law attorneys at the Bellon Law Group are available to assist you with the process of entering into a domestic partnership.
A domestic partnership grants two persons the same rights, protections, and privileges in the state of Nevada that they would enjoy if they were a married couple. Additionally, couples who have entered into a valid domestic partnership in other states will have their partnership recognized in Nevada.
With laws that currently do not protect same-sex couples’ rights, many people face challenges in protecting assets and ensuring their wishes will be carried out in the event of an illness or death.
While a domestic partnership is not a legal marriage and has no recognition under federal law, it can be important to protecting several of your rights in Nevada.
If entering into a domestic partnership is something you are considering, contact the Nevada family law attorneys at the Bellon Law Group by calling 702-452-6299 or e-mail the firm to arrange a consultation.
