Same-Sex Family Law in Colorado

Same-Sex Marriage, Civil Unions, and Domestic Partnership Agreements

If you are in a same-sex marriage or civil union, it is important to protect your rights, your partner's rights, and the rights of your children, even as the laws regarding same-sex marriage and civil unions continue to change. By speaking with a highly experienced attorney from our firm, you can ensure that your legal issues are skillfully handled and that your partnership, divorce, or marriage matters are fully and carefully resolved. It is extremely important to hire an attorney that is up-to-date on all new laws pertaining to same-sex marriage and domestic partnerships.

Domestic partnership agreements allow gay and lesbian couples to enter into a domestic union. In 2011 the Colorado Civil Union Act was introduced, which allowed same-sex couples and heterosexual couples to enter into unions that are limited by the Colorado Constitution. In 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that state-level bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional and effectively declared same-sex marriage legal in all states. Regardless of the type of domestic arrangement, it is important to ensure that all of the rights granted in a same-sex union are fully understood and protected.

Establishing a domestic partnership allows you to form a legal contract with your partner that establishes certain responsibilities and rights. If the partnership should end, it is imperative to have an agreement in place that will provide you and your partner with an equitable division of property, establish parental responsibility between both partners, and provide spousal maintenance for one partner where it is considered necessary. Domestic partnership agreements are also important for hospital visitation rights and parental rights.

Whether you are married or not, every couple has important issues to resolve before, during, and even after the union. Putting those agreements in place can greatly benefit you and your family. At Cantafio & Song PLLC, our attorneys are highly skilled in resolving all issues pertaining to domestic partnership and same sex marriages. Call us today so that your rights can be discussed.
