Attorneys can make a Relationship Easier http://www.knclawfirm.com/atlanta/domestic-partnership-attorneys/ Relationships, especially romantic relationships such as marriages and domestic partnerships are very complex. Not surprisingly many people dislike the idea of bringing an attorney into his or her relationship because they fear the lawyer will only complicate matters. The truth is that a good domestic partnership attorney can make your life and your relationship much easier. The lawyer can do this by drawing up legally binding agreements that outline your rights and obligations and protect them. For example the attorney can help you with medical power of attorney and child custody agreements that can establish legal rights. Many people don’t realize it but a domestic partner may have no legal right or ability to make medical decisions for a partner. There is a legal agreement called a medical power of attorney or a living will that can give you this power. When this document is presented no doctor can prevent you from making medical decisions for an incapacitated partner. Other agreements can establish your right to take control of your partner’s property, investments, business and bank accounts if he or she dies or becomes incapacitated. Without such protection your partner’s relatives could try to exclude from such assets including assets you may have earned. You might have to end up fighting an expensive court battle in order to establish your legal right to shared possessions. What Attorneys can do for LGBT couples A good family lawyer in Atlanta can help you draw up a legally binding domestic partnership agreement that can protect your rights and your money. It’s like a prenuptial agreement. Such an attorney can do the same for a straight couple that is living together but does not want to marry. The LGBT attorney can help any couple establish a legal contract that will be recognized by the courts regardless of their marital status or sexual orientation. The contract will establish their legal rights and protect their property and assets. Something to remember is that prejudices often get worse when money and property is involved. Relatives have a very bad habit of appearing out of the woodwork and demanding their “rights” when a person who has money dies or becomes incapacitated. A few well written legal documents can take care of such pests and an expert family law attorney in Atlanta can create them for you. Without such legal protection you may have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to hire an attorney to go to court and protect your rights. You could have saved yourself that money by establishing legally binding agreements to protect your rights with an attorney’s help.
