Seminar slated for domestic partnerships

About 200 people in western Nevada County are registered as being in domestic partnerships, according to Equality California.

California’s 2005 domestic partnership law gives legal standing to people in opposite-sex relationships if one of the partners is 62 years old or older, and to people in committed same-sex relationships. The status affords some legal protections, but not the full protection of marriage.

A seminar on the legal ramifications of registering as domestic partners will feature experts speaking about adoption, investment, credit, buying a home, community property, taxes, wills, trusts and break-up.

The seminar will be from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday at the Keller Williams Real Estate office, 391 Howe Ave., Sacramento. It is being organized by Equity California, the statewide organization advocating for marriage equality for non-heterosexuals. For more information, call 210-668.
