Honest Assessments And Trusted Legal Advocacy

Guidance For Domestic Partnership Law

The law has moved slowly when protecting the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender citizens. Fortunately, legal avenues exist to protect the family structure and property of every citizen. My name is Charles M. Hall, and I work hard to help individuals in the LGBTQ community accomplish their legal goals.

While the Obergefell v. Hodges decision has made it easier for same-sex couples, who may legally marry in all 50 states, practical differences and similarities now mean that many same-sex couples may have even greater reasons to make wills and powers of attorney than some heterosexual couples.

Real-World Experience With The Challenges Of LGBTQ Couples

I have had substantial experience with the estate planning, real estate, and contracts issues that were used to protect same-sex couples before the protection of marriage rights was extended to all, and I understand how to deal with this patch-work like structure in today’s environment.

My practice is about finding solutions to match each individual situation. Even with the advent of marriage equality, some couples don’t get married and estate planning and real estate and contract issues still exist.

Decades Of Practical Experience With Domestic Partner Estate Planning

I have been practicing law for more than 40 years. I have tailored my practice to cover only areas that are interesting or important to me. Helping people to protect their families, and their wishes with regard to property distribution is important to me.

I assure my clients that they will receive the full benefit of my experience. I draft domestic partnership agreements, act as your estate planning attorney, and handle real estate ownership issues.

Same-Sex And Domestic Partner Divorce

I also have considerable experience representing former domestic partners, who have no formal agreement in dealing with the contentious issues that arise once the relationship is over. Marriage equality also brings divorce equality and many same-sex couples want to end the relationship under the rules established by the Georgia divorce code and traditional family law issues.

My experience allows me to help you with wills, trusts, powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, joint tenancy agreements, domestic partnership agreements and modifications, real estate ownership agreements, physician directives, and deeds. I also handle will contests and probate litigation if your right to take property under a will is being disputed. I am a member of the Atlanta Bar Association as well as the Stonewall Bar Association and I understand both the law, and the challenges it poses to same-sex couples.
