Some Benefits Extended to Domestic Partners of Federal Employees

On Wednesday, President Obama signed a memorandum that extended certain benefits to domestic partners of federal employees. Since this is a small “first step” according to the Obama Administration, what can same sex couples in domestic partnerships do today to get more legal protection?

Now, in partnership with LegalOut, is doing something to help. Same sex couples can now create an easy Domestic Partnership Agreement online. The document provides couples with a legal way to define the terms of their committed relationship, including how the couple will divide their income, whether property will be shared or separately owned, and even how the partnership will be dissolved in the event that the couple separates in the future. All committed LGBT couples should complete a Domestic Partnership Agreement to protect themselves and their families.
