[ALBUQUERQUE, 08/29/2017] – Despite the growing number of marriages and civil unions, a number of couples choose instead to acknowledge their relationship through legal agreements. The Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer offers legal counsel for clients interested in this arrangement.
With over 30 years of experience, senior and principle attorney Dorene Kuffer and her staff assist clients in creating a domestic partnership agreement.
Why a Domestic Partnership?
The New Mexico State University defines domestic partners as: “two individuals who live together in a long-term relationship of indefinite duration.” Both partners, adds the NMSU, should have an exclusive mutual commitment to support each other to the same degree and manner as the law prescribes for married couples.
In terms of finances, the Law Office of Dorene A. Kuffer emphasizes the importance of a domestic partnership agreement. According to the family law firm, the agreement sets forth a clear understanding about the rules surrounding the financial aspects of the relationship.
Should a partnership end, domestic partners do not have the protection of divorce laws. With a domestic agreement, partners can decide on the treatment of debts, assets, children, income, and expenses in case of separation, illness or death.
