Distribution of Domestic Partnerships

Dissolution of a Domestic Partnership

Domestic partnerships are not legally recognized in the state of New York. However, if you were legally married in another state, you can obtain a dissolution of a domestic partnership in New York.

If you need to speak with a New York attorney about the dissolution of a domestic partnership, contact the family law attorneys at Brooke, Brady & Schopfer, LLP. Based in Poughkeepsie, New York, we provide family law representation throughout Dutchess County.

Why Retain Us?

If you are involved or expect to soon be involved in a family law case, we should be your first call. Our law firm has been handling dissolutions and other family law matters for more than 30 years. Family law is all we do, and we do it well.

How Does a Domestic Partnership Dissolution Work?

If you entered into a domestic partnership in another state and have resided in New York for a sufficient period of time, you may seek a dissolution in New York. The legal process can consider the same issues as any divorce, including property division, child custody, visitation and child support.

If you and your significant other have legally adopted a child, you should retain experienced legal counsel to protect your custody and visitation rights. Our domestic partnership dissolution attorneys work diligently to help clients resolve disputes amicably if possible. However, we have the courtroom experience necessary if a property or custody dispute cannot be effectively resolved by mutual agreement of the parties. We handle contested, uncontested and collaborative law divorce at our firm to provide a flexible approach that meets each of our clients’ individual needs.
