Same-sex couples, whether previously registered as domestic partners in Washington State or not, now have the ability to get married under state law. For those who are already registered and under the age of 62, their partnerships will be converted to marriages on June 30, 2014. Those seeking to dissolve their partnership are exempt from this "grandfather" provision.

The hard-fought right to marry brings with it many potential questions for same-sex couples who have already been sharing their lives together, whether for a short time or for several years. Additionally, the current refusal of many state laws and federal law to recognize the legality of same-sex marriage causes the potential for denial of associated benefits such as the right to make medical decisions and inherit property. For some couples, it may be important to retain additional legal protection to guard against such difficulties.
Regardless of the length of your relationship or the nature of your concerns, our experienced Federal Way divorce and family law attorneys are here to offer guidance and support.
