Same Sex Couples
Washington Lawyers Serving GLBT Families
The state of Washington has made tremendous strides toward equality in the past few years, but huge obstacles remain. While domestic partnership laws offer same-sex couples many legal protections, they still do not provide the same rights granted through marriage.
The attorneys at the Scott Horenstein Law Firm, PLLC have been nationally recognized for excellence in family law. Our firm helps same-sex couples create lasting legal relationships that fully account for the legal protections otherwise omitted by the domestic partnership laws. Whether you want to prepare a cohabitation agreement or you are considering adoption, we can effectively represent you.

Providing Quality Counsel for Same Sex Couples
Our attorneys will fully address all of the family law concerns a same-sex couple may encounter, including:
- Cohabitation agreements: Although the domestic partnership laws provide many legal protections for same sex couples, they may not cover all of the issues a family may encounter. A cohabitation agreement is similar to a prenuptial agreement and may help to minimize any future disputes.
- Domestic partnership dissolution: Just as some marriages end in divorce, some domestic partnerships end in dissolution. We help clients effectively and efficiently navigate the dissolution process and resolve any outstanding issues.
- Child custody, visitation, and support: Separation is generally more complex and emotional when children are involved. We represent clients with legal issues related to child custody and support. Whether you are undergoing a dissolution and want to pursue primary custody of your children, or need to create a child support / custody arrangement, we can effectively serve you.
- Second-parent adoption: We are seasoned family law attorneys with exceptional experience helping families through the adoption process. When pursuing a second-parent adoption, we will work to minimize your frustration, confusion and anxiety during this time so that you can enjoy the rewarding experience.
Our attorneys are committed to providing you with personal, responsive legal counsel. You can trust that we will promptly return your calls, answer your questions and guide you through your legal issue.
