Experienced Legal Guidance In Domestic Partnerships

California same sex family law and domestic partnership law continue to develop and evolve. A domestic partnership carries with it many of the same legal protection, rights and responsibilities as a heterosexual marriage.

At The Law Office of Martha J. Olson & Associates, we advise clients in San Jose in all aspects of domestic partnership law, including:

  • Establishment of domestic partnerships
  • Dissolution of domestic partnerships
  • Child custody and visitation issues
  • Property division
  • Spousal support after dissolution
  • Modifications to custody, visitation, and support
  • Medical benefits issues
  • Issues arising out of cohabitation arrangements

Much like a divorce, the dissolution of a domestic partnership can create a right to spousal support and the need to divide property. Persons considering entering into a domestic partnership need to give the same serious consideration to this step as would a couple considering marriage. Our lawyers can provide you with a complete explanation of the legal rights and responsibilities created by a domestic partnership.

Protection In Situations Of Domestic Violence

If you are in a troubled relationship, you do not have to suffer threats, intimidation, assault, or other violent behavior. Our attorneys can take immediate action to protect you or your children from this type of behavior by a partner. An order of protection, or restraining order, is a measure than can provide for the safety of you and your children.
