San Diego Domestic Partnership Lawyer

Secure Your Legal Rights

If you are part of a long-term and committed relationship, living together with your partner outside of marriage, there are certain legal protections that can be put in place to protect your interests. At Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC, we help couples with issues related to domestic partnerships.

There are many potential benefits to establishing a domestic partnership:
  • Eligibility for your partner's health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Eligibility for death benefits
  • Eligibility for sick and bereavement leave if your partner gets sick
  • Eligibility for shared accident and life insurance

These are all vital parts of a long-term relationship that are traditionally only granted to marriages automatically. However, having an experienced San Diego family lawyer on your side can help you make a case for these benefits and protect you and your loved one's future.

Dissolving a Domestic Partnership

Since 1995, California law has required that domestic partnerships must be dissolved in a way similar to marital dissolution. This means that community property rules for division of marital property apply. Our domestic partnership attorneys are also well-versed in all types of complex property division matters.

If your long-term relationship is ending, let our attorneys share all of your options with you. Led by our board-certified family law specialist, Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC can empower you to affirm your rights, fight for what is rightfully yours, and make clear and confident decisions about your situation.
