Coeur d’Alene Lawyer Handling Dissolution of Domestic Partnerships

Serving Coeur d’Alene & Kootenai County areas, including Coeur d’Alene ▪ Hayden

Whether a domestic partnership involves a same-sex couple or a heterosexual couple, legal issues may apply when the partnership breaks up. Domestic partners who have registered with the state of Idaho have enjoyed the same rights that married couples do. Likewise, when they separate, they need to settle the same issues that married couples must settle when they divorce, including the following:

  • Asset and debt division
  • “Spousal” support
  • Child custody and visitation

Whether you and your domestic partner were registered with the state of Idaho or were simply cohabitating informally, it is in your best interests to consult a lawyer to schedule a free phone consultation.

Discuss with a knowledgeable and caring family law attorney legal issues that pertain to your registered domestic partnership (RDP) or cohabitation situation. Learn what legal rights and responsibilities you have with regard to children that you have co-parented with your domestic partner, home ownership, debt liability and other aspects of the dissolution of your partnership. Your domestic partnership may be legally divisible through a simple civil action, or it may involve complicated discovery issues. When disputes cannot be resolved amicably, you have the right to a jury trial.
