Let Our LGBTQ Rights and Same-Sex Marriage Attorneys Help You

Family law as it relates to LGBTQ rights and same-sex marriage is complex and weighs heavily on your life, financial affairs, and your children. At Twyford Law Office, we guide you through difficult family law issues to achieve the best results possible for you and your loved ones.

This includes:

  • Helping you understand your options and alternatives, allowing you to make informed decisions;
  • Negotiating property division before marriage in a prenuptial agreement, during a marriage, or in a divorce; and
  • Assisting in creating manageable child custody, visitation, and support agreements.

Twyford Law Office provides these and many more services for same-sex couples. Call our full-service law firm today for help resolving your issues efficiently and without the burden of resolving these matters on your own.

LGBTQ and Same-Sex Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a contract you and your partner enter into before marriage, specifying how property and assets are to be divided in the event of divorce. Without a prenuptial agreement, the family court divides assets equitably without consideration to individual ownership or purchases.

If you and your partner are already married, you can enter into a postnuptial agreement. This is like a prenuptial agreement but entered into during the marriage.

LGBTQ and Same-Sex Domestic Partnership Agreements

For couples who live together before marriage or choose not to marry, a domestic partnership agreement can establish how bills will be paid and what will happen to any assets acquired while living together should there be a breakup. Without such an agreement, any assets and income earned during the relationship may be subject to equitable distribution by the court.

LGBTQ and Same-Sex Maternity, Paternity, and Adoptions

Children can present unique situations to same-sex relationships. For example, one partner may be the legal parent of a child while the other is not. In these instances, it is best to consult an experienced same-sex and LGBTQ family law attorney.

LGBTQ and Same-Sex Wills and Designated Beneficiaries

Same-sex estate planning is imperative to ensure a couple’s family and assets are protected in the event of death. Estate planning documents can work to protect your rights and fulfill your final wishes.

LGBTQ and Same-Sex Divorce

LGBTQ and same-sex couples have the same legal rights as any couple during a Seattle divorce.
