"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws".



Unlike other states, Nevada has now enacted laws to PROTECT same sex unions. The Domestic Partnership Responsibilities Act 2009 will provide the exact state-level rights, responsibilities, obligations, entitlements and benefits of marriage, without calling it a marriage, instead it is called a Domestic Partnership. In Nevada, provision have been made for one member of a same-sex couple to adopt the child of the other member or for the partners to adopt the child together. There have been some exceptions--call us for details.

Our Offices have worked with the local GLBT community for many years providing assistance in protecting the rights of same-sex couples. To date there are no legal provisions for filing a joint federal tax return or for collecting a partner's social security benefits; however, we can help you with other issues using our recently developed Domestic Partnership Portfolio..

We are pleased that Nevada has joined the ranks of the more "enlightened" states that have enacted domestic partnership laws!
