Although Georgia law does not generally recognize domestic partners, there are a number of documents couples can use to protect their important relationships. By creating and signing a Last Will and Testament, Georgia Advance Directive for Health Care, and Durable Financial Power of Attorney, a couple is able to protect their legal, medical, and financial affairs from control by their biological families.
There are many corporations and even municipalities in Georgia where domestic partners are treated as husbands and wives for purposes of corporate benefits. This may apply to insurance, retirement, healthcare and the like. As the United States Supreme Court has legalized same sex marriages, there will be more issues addressed in Georgia Courts. The Georgia Courts will typically handle a same sex marriage as any other marriage although the law is still developing in this area.
Georgia is not a palimony state where one partner can get alimony from a domestic partner where they have had a living arrangement for some period of time. Because of this, creating a Domestic Partner Agreement or Antenuptial Agreement is recommended. These agreements establish rights and responsibilities with regard to each other and the property, assets and liabilities the couple accrues while they are in a domestic partner situation. A contract is enforceable in court subject to existing laws.CONTACT A DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIP ATTORNEY IN ALPHARETTA
