Knowledge of Current Domestic Partnership Laws and Your Rights

Oregon laws allowing and governing domestic partnerships have changed substantially in recent years. Our family law attorneys have a strong understanding of:

  • Individuals’ and families’ rights under the Oregon Family Fairness Act — such as those pertaining to insurance, hospital visitation and inheritance
  • Adjustments to the law made in 2009, dealing with name change procedures, taxation and medical decisions made for same-sex partners
  • The full range of issues faced by couples who decide to seek a dissolution of their domestic partnership — corresponding to those faced by couples who divorce and often including property division disputes and custody issues for adopted children
