Ensuring the Legal Status of Your Domestic Partnership
Domestic partnership is an alternative to marriage, where couples are provided the rights and benefits that they would be entitled to if they are married. The same responsibilities and obligations also apply. Over the years, domestic partnership has emerged as a viable option for same-sex couples as well as opposite-sex couples who wish to cohabit but without getting married. Under a domestic partnership agreement, both partners will enjoy all the benefits that spouses do, such as health coverage via their partner’s insurance plan.
