Pursuant to this law, two people can enter into a domestic partnership in the state of Nevada allowing them to benefit from many of the same rights as married couples. The experienced family law attorneys at Bellon & Maningo, Ltd. are available to assist you with the process of entering into a domestic partnership.
A domestic partnership grants two persons the same rights, protections, and privileges in the state of Nevada that they would enjoy if they were a married couple. Additionally, couples who have entered into a valid domestic partnership in other states will have their partnership recognized in Nevada.
With laws that currently do not protect same-sex couples’ rights, many people face challenges in protecting assets and ensuring their wishes will be carried out in the event of an illness or death.
While a domestic partnership is not a legal marriage and has no recognition under federal law, it can be important to protecting several of your rights in Nevada.
