Atlanta Domestic Partnership Law Attorney
Atlanta, Georgia Domestic Partnership Lawyer
The law has moved slowly, if at all, towards 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 the GLBT community accomplish their legal goals. While many things have been made easier for same sex couples, who may legally marry in all 50 states, practical differences and similarities now mean that same sex couples have even greater reasons to make wills and powers of attorney that some heterosexual couples,
Many protections that opposite sex couples take for granted must be pieced together using several legal methods and documents for same sex couples. I have substantial experience with the estate planning, real estate, and contracts issues that can be used to protect same sex couples until the protection of marriage rights are extended to all. My practice is about finding solutions to match each individual situation. Even with the advent of marriage equality, some coupled don’t get married and estate planning and real estate and contract issues still exist.
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 regards to property distribution, is important to me. I can assure my clients that they will receive the full benefit of my experience. I can draft domestic partnership agreements, act as your estate planning attorney, and handle real estate ownership issues. 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 many same sex couples who 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 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 the same sex couples.
Contact me, today, to start the process of protecting your family relationship, and your right to distribute your property as you see fit. I can help you take control of your life.
