Some of this growth may be due to the rights provided to registered domestic partners in this state and its perception as a friendly area to move to. It is likely that other growth simply reflects that more couples are comfortable sharing their status with the census than they were even 10 years ago.
The census data also reflects a growth in same couples raising children showing that now 20% of all same sex couples are raising children together.
At Phinney Estate Law we are committed to helping all families create estate plans that are right for them and pride ourselves on our service to same sex couples, who often face special challenges become of a lack of recognition at the federal level.
