Domestic Partnerships

St. Petersburg Domestic Partnership Attorneys

Legal options for same-sex and unmarried heterosexual couples

Passage of domestic partnership ordinances raise many questions about how registration can benefit you, what its limitations are and what types of responsibilities are involved. With more than 25 years of family law experience, the domestic partnership lawyers at St. Petersburg law firm Kidder & Bennett can provide you with the answers.

Benefits of domestic partner registration

You acquire many of the advantages of marriage through domestic partnership registration within the jurisdictions that recognize your status, including:

  • Shared parental rights
  • Eligibility for public benefits
  • Inclusion of your domestic partner and children on your health insurance
  • Assistance of the family law courts in settling disputes
  • Property rights if your relationship ends

In addition to financial and parental protections, you may enjoy greater stability and legitimacy in your relationship through the process of registering your domestic partnership.

Options for protecting your rights outside of marriage

Your relationship is not universally recognized, however, and so your rights and privileges are limited to select jurisdictions. The federal government, many states and most jurisdictions within Florida do not grant crucial benefits to domestic partners. We advise you on methods for protecting your family, such as:

  • Contracts that reflect the property rights of both partners
  • Deeds that protect real estate rights if one partner dies or the couple separates
  • Wills that protect each partner when the other dies
  • Advance directives that grant each partner surrogacy
  • Pre-registration agreements that establish terms should your relationship end
