Adoption and Assisted Reproduction

Adoption clients have been married couples, same-sex partners, and single parents. We have handled numerous Washington re-adoptions of children adopted internationally. We also routinely counsels birth mothers who are consenting to second-parent adoptions by their same-sex partners. We have worked with all parties in assisted reproduction agreements -- sperm donors, egg donors and recipient parents -- to ensure that the interests and goals of all parties are being carefully and appropriately addressed.

Prenuptial, Cohabitation and Domestic Partnership Agreements

Our firm encourages couples entering into new stages of their relationships - whether by marrying, moving in together, buying property together, or officially becoming domestic partners via registration or ceremony - to carefully plan for the financial management of their new partnerships, and to investigate and understand the legal consequences of their arrangements.

We believe that a good relationship agreement can be exceedingly helpful in establishing expectations and practices for a long future together. And in the event of dissolution of the relationship, a good agreement can minimize conflict and cost. Our firm makes it our practice not to draft agreements unless the couple is committed to doing so collaboratively, utilizing us either as a mediator and draftsperson (not counsel to both partners), or as counsel to one partner as part of a collaborative team.
