Domestic Partnerships

An alternative to marriage is a domestic partnership.  Domestic partnerships are registered with the State of Washington.  The reality is that parties can create a marriage-like relationship which gives rise to property interests by living together without a marriage license.  Before uniting in a marriage-like relationship, speak with an experienced family law attorney to discuss the wisdom of preparing a prenuptial agreement, cohabitation agreement, or other agreement which might help you avoid costly litigation if the relationship ends.
