Helping Same-Sex Couples Understand Their Rights Under Partnership Agreements
Due to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2015, same-sex marriages are now recognized in Georgia, giving individuals access to all legal rights under the Georgia Family Code. However, just because same-sex marriage is legal, doesn’t mean marriage is the desired option for all same-sex couples in our state.
At The Manely Firm, P.C., we recognize the desires of same-sex and heterosexual couples to choose not to marry and instead establish a thorough and legally sound partnership agreement.
Planning For The Future Through Partnership Agreements
With convenient office locations situated around the Atlanta area, our Georgia family law firm provides accessible and comprehensive legal assistance to our clients dealing with a wide range of family law matters, like partnership agreements.
Whether you are gay or straight, a partnership agreement can help people who are moving in together strategically organize assets and finances. A partnership agreement is similar to a marriage contract, in that it contractually connects two people by law. In it, individuals can detail their wishes about the management of their finances, property, children and other important aspects of their lives.
Our lawyers can help you establish a partnership agreement that addresses items, including:
- Significant assets
- Gifts and inheritances
- Parenting agreements
- Life insurance policy
- Beneficiary designations
- Powers of attorney
At Manely Firm, P.C., we want to help you protect what you value in your life. In addition to helping you with the items listed above, our attorneys work with you and your loved one to ensure you are taking into consideration important or unexpected life events such as the incapacitation or death of your partner.
Modifications And Dissolution Of Partnership Agreements
We also help our clients modify and end partnership agreements.
When a relationship comes to an end, there are several factors that will need to be addressed. Much like in our divorce cases, we can help you sort through those main issues, such as custody, property division, and support, ensuring that those agreements you made in your partnership contract are followed through.
