Domestic partnerships have some similarities to the rights and responsibilities that spouses have to each other. However, the advantages and benefits can differ between the two. Domestic partners can receive both financial and non-financial benefits from their partners.

These benefits may include:

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Accident insurance
  • Death benefits
  • Housing benefits
  • Sick and bereavement leave

Domestic partnerships in California often go through the dissolution process as marriages do. Couples must shift their focus and compromise on matters such as child support, child custody, property division, alimony, as well as the payment of debts. That said, it is critical to have a Westlake Village family law attorney provide you with the necessary legal support, as well as the compassionate, caring support to assist you with your domestic partnership case.

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”

  • I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”
