Domestic PartnershipsAnd Same-Sex Divorce

Couples in same-sex marriages considering a divorce need to work with a law firm that has experience handling same-sex marriage legal issues. Our attorneys at Haslam & Thorne, APC, understand the complex nature of your case and provide caring and compassionate legal advice.

We represent same-sex couples in Ontario, California, and throughout the Inland Empire with all types of family law issues from divorce to property division to child custody issues.

Domestic Partnerships

In California, if you enter into a domestic partnership agreement, you will have the same legal rights as married couples. A domestic partnership agreement is a contract that specifies property rights and can even include provisions for child custody and visitation rights.

A Domestic Partnership Agreement Allows both Parties to Receive Full Health Care and other Insurance Benefits Previously Reserved for Married Couples.

We can help you draft an agreement that you can use to your benefit for securing employment and insurance benefits.

If you are currently in a legally recognized domestic partnership and are considering ending your relationship, you cannot simply walk away from the agreement. When registered with the family law courts, a domestic partnership agreement is a legally binding contract. We can help you protect your rights as you pursue your interests in a final settlement.

Gay Marriage And Filing For Divorce

Same-sex married couples face the same issues as heterosexual couples during divorce. Our legal team is committed to protecting your best interests. We have experience handling all types of family law issues you may face, including:

  • Partnership agreements, lesbian and GLBT relationships
  • Legal issues relating to same-sex marriages
  • Property settlements
  • Child custody and visitation rights
  • Child support
  • Spousal support and alimony
  • Guardianship
  • Grandparents’ rights

If you got married in California and now live in a state that will not dissolve a same-sex marriage, we can help. You are still able to file for divorce but you must file in the county where you were married. If neither spouse lives in California, the court may not be able to make orders regarding other issues like property division and child custody during your divorce.
