Allen, TX Domestic Partnership Lawyer

Domestic Partners Attorney

Even though domestic partnerships are not currently recognized under Texas law, that does not mean that same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples cannot benefit from the services of an experienced lawyer. Through creative use of estate planning tools, such as wills, trusts and powers of attorney, some of the benefits of domestic partnerships can be achieved.

Domestic Partnerships and the Strengths of Estate Planning

In a domestic partnership, your partner would be allowed to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to make them. If you pass away, your property would go to your partner in much the same way it would go to a spouse if you were married. I can explain to you how you can achieve these features through careful estate planning.

Ending Domestic Partnerships in Texas

If you are considering ending a domestic partnership that was established in some other state, you want to have an experienced family law lawyer on your side. This is a complicated matter, simply because, for both opposite-sex and same-sex couples, domestic partnerships are not recognized in Texas. There will be challenges that I can help you with.
