At the Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive legal services to both individuals and families. Our lawyers also handle same-sex issues for non-married couples in Glen Burnie, Maryland, and throughout the state.
Providing Knowledgeable Answers to Difficult Legal Questions
With more than 20 years of experience, our founding lawyer, Todd K. Mohink, is an excellent resource to guide you through the complexities of ever-evolving domestic law. In particular, he is available to provide answers to the difficult questions you may have about your rights in a same-sex relationship if you and your partner are not married. Such questions may include:
I’m in a domestic partnership, but the relationship is not working out. What property division rights do I have if we separate?
My partner adopted a child several years ago, and I have played an active role in helping raise her. Now that my partner and I are splitting up, do I have the right to continue to see the child?
For the past 20 years, I’ve always been the one working while my partner stayed at home. Can he claim any part of my retirement benefits, even though we aren’t legally married?
Protecting the Legal Rights of Domestic Partners
Our Maryland law firm works hard to help clients protect their legal rights, regardless of whether they are married or not. If you are in a domestic partnership, there are a variety of legal tools available to guard your interests and meet your needs. These tools may include:
- Domestic partnership agreements, which can establish property rights between unmarried couples
Parenting plan agreements, which detail child custody and support arrangements
Advance medical directives, which can appoint your partner as your health care agent should you become incapacitated
Durable power of attorney, which allows your partner to make financial decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so
