While domestic partners do not enjoy the same privileges and legal advantages afforded married couples, many of the same benefits can be achieved through alternate means. At the Naperville law firm of Sullivan Taylor & Gumina, our attorneys explain what sorts of contractual relationships domestic partners can enter into in order to secure the custody of children, transfer property upon death, arrange for healthcare benefits, and other issues. In each case, documenting the relationship between the parties involved and developing private contracts early on is essential. We can evaluate your current situation, discuss the legal options available to you, and indicate what legal steps need to be taken to achieve your long term goals.
Don't wait until a custody dispute, illness, or decision to separate creates legal issues that could lead to expensive litigation - contact Naperville family law lawyers at Sullivan Taylor & Gumina today.
Preventing legal problems is essential in any area of the law. Entering into a private contract or co-habitation agreement can provide domestic partners with the protection they need should a dispute arise over custody of their children, inheritance rights, or who gets what if a separation is necessary.
