Same-Sex Couples & Family Law
Las Vegas Family Attorneys
Although there are no marriage laws that guarantee that same-sex couples
can have full marital rights in Nevada, same-sex couples in the state
have been granted legal recognition of same-sex unions. Same-sex marriage
has not yet been legalized in Nevada, but same-sex couples are able to
establish domestic partnerships that allow them to exercise the same rights
as opposite-sex married couples. This essentially means that same-sex
couples in a domestic partnership union can enjoy the same rights, responsibilities,
and benefits as opposite-sex couples with a marriage license.
Same-sex couples who wish to enter into or terminate a domestic partnership
must follow specific steps. At Leavitt Law Firm, we have dedicated
