Our firm has been guiding clients through the family legal system for 20 years and has significant experience handling partnership matters like finances, child support, and property division. We help heterosexual and same-sex couples in Orlando navigate their relationship with regards to the law, and we can help you draft a thorough domestic partnership agreement that reflects your interests and needs.
What Is a Domestic Partnership Agreement?
A domestic partnership is an arrangement in which two adults are in a committed family relationship and share their homes and assets without the formality of a legal marriage. Anyone who does not wish to marry for any reason can elect to be domestic partners instead, as a formal partnership can help to protect the rights of both partners and any children they may have.
Keep in mind that a domestic partnership agreement is not recognized by the family courts in Florida and cannot be enforced in the same manner as a marriage contract. However, it can be enforced under contract law in most cases.
