At Claery & Green, we provide legal representation to same sex couples throughout California. Unlike traditional married couples, gay and lesbian couples are required to take legal action to enjoy the full rights and protections of California law.
California does not recognize common law marriage, so if you live with your same sex partner you must take legal action to receive full protection under the law. Taking these steps may also benefit your relationship with your same sex partner by clearly spelling out your commitment to each other.
An experienced lawyer from our firm can help you and your partner with a number of legal issues. If you experienced complications during your registration of domestic partnership, you need to take legal action to make sure you receive full protection under the law. Likewise, if you are looking to file for
termination of domestic partnership or
dissolution of domestic partnership, an attorney from our firm can assist you in taking the necessary actions to legally terminate your relationship so that you can move forward with your life. It is important that you do not confuse a dissolution or termination of a domestic partnership with a nullity.

custody & visitation rights.

Representing Gay and Lesbian Couples throughout California
Although the state of California does not legally allow for the marriage of same-sex couples, it does recognize domestic partnerships. Our family lawyers have experience handling a variety of legal issues faced specifically by gay and lesbian couples, including domestic partnership and will work hard to get you and your partner the results you seek. Domestic partner registration is a fairly recent development which allows for same sex couples to enjoy many of the same benefits as married couples. Due to the fact that same sex marriages are not recognized by most states within the United States, including California, there is no method by which to measure the relationship between gay and lesbian couples or the families they create. Domestic partnership is a way for a same sex couple to declare their relationship with the purpose of obtaining certain benefits that heterosexual couples enjoy.
Gay, lesbian, and transgender advocacy is something our attorneys feel very strongly about. Cleary and Green law group will handle your case in a sensitive and effective manner to achieve optimal results for your specific situation. With a skilled domestic partnership attorney representing you, you will have exceptional legal guidance and support until the matter is resolved.
