Claery & Hammond is Dedicated to Providing Relentless Protection of Clients' Rights

Same sex couples all across the country can still face biasness and prejudice in legal systems, despite same sex marriage being legalized by a Supreme Court order. If you have encountered a legal issue that must be addressed, it will take a great deal of skill and knowledge to ensure that your rights and best interests are upheld. At Claery & Hammond, LLP, we are prepared to aggressively advocate for your civil rights and parental rights, and even your estate planning rights! We are proud legal allies to LGBTQ+ communities who strive to ensure our clients are fully protected under both California state law and federal laws.

Domestic Partnerships & Your Rights

Same sex couples in California can choose to either enter a same sex marriage, a domestic partnership, or both. Some tax, legal, and social benefits associated with marriage can also apply to same sex marriages and domestic partnerships, which you have a right to understand and utilize. A domestic partnership could need to be terminated as well, or a same sex marriage ended with divorce. Division of property and assets that were accrued during the term of the partnership will be split, and the final result for you will be largely based upon the quality and experience of your chosen attorney. We are zealous advocates for our clients. Don't take any chances with your future – get an attorney that is highly-committed, aggressive, and ready to go to bat for you in court.

Cohabitation Agreements & Legal Issues

When you share a home with your partner, it is important to begin to consider the future of your family. Our Los Angeles family law attorneys advise same sex couples about how to protect themselves with legal preparations for unpredictable circumstances, such as severe injury or death.

For example, should your partner become ill or pass away, without proper filings, you could be forced to move out of a shared home, lose many of your personal possessions, and would have no rights regarding postmortem care and estate management. In cases of illness, you could be restricted from going to visit your loved one, and may have absolutely no say in matters regarding care and treatment, even if this is what your partner would have wished. We help our clients get these matters resolved, and fight for their rights in any dispute, either in court or through the alternative dispute resolution process.

Resolving Support & Custody Concerns

Even when all legal matters have been addressed thoroughly, some unforeseen issues might need a court's intervention to finally resolve. In cases regarding child custody and child or spousal support, it is often a stubborn spouse or domestic partner that drags the issue out and to litigation. Should domestic violence have taken place, or if it is alleged that you were an abusive parent or partner, the situation can become extremely volatile, spreading repercussions to your life and future. We can help you fight for your rights, clear your name, protect your children, and get through all other legal matters that could arise.
