The ACLU of Nevada and the ACLU's national LGBT-AIDS Project designed a resource to answer some of the Frequently Asked Questions about domestic partnerships in Nevada. The FAQ is now available on our website and the national Get Busy, Get Equal site

In 2009, the Nevada legislature passed Senate Bill 283 which establishes a domestic partnership registry that allows same-sex and opposite-sex couples the opportunity to register their domestic partnership with the Secretary of State’s Office. The bill states that domestic partners "have the same rights, protections and benefits, and are subject to the same responsibilities, obligations and duties under law, whether derived from statutes, administrative regulations, court rules, government policies, common law or any other provisions or sources of law, as are granted to and imposed upon spouses."
