Same Sex Marriages

Washington passed a law in 2012 which legalizes same sex marriages.  The law creates a number of unique issues for same sex couples, as well as questions for the future of the law. If you are considering marrying in Washington, or are currently in a domestic partnership and have questions about the new law, it will be beneficial for you to schedule an appointment with a qualified attorney so that you fully understand what this law means to you.  In addition, if you are in an existing domestic partnership it is critical for you to understand how the recent changes to the marriage rights law applies to your domestic partnership.
