Children and Divorce: The Most Important Issues

Beginning October 1, 2009, Nevada adopted a law allowing for the registration of domestic partners.

    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.

If entering into a domestic partnership is something you are considering, contact the Nevada family law attorneys at Bellon & Maningo, Ltd. Call 702-452-6299 or e-mail the firm to arrange a consultation.
