Generally, the same concerns that involve family law also apply to same-sex family law. However, same-sex partners do not have all the legal protections that husbands and wives do. Marriage of opposite- and same-sex couples requires a commitment that affects all areas of your life, long after a divorce or separation. When thinking about such partnerships and possible legal contracts, it is a good idea to have a qualified lawyer draft them for you.
People involved in a same-sex marriage or partnership experience the same concerns that opposite-sex couples do – divorce or dissolution of the union, child custody and support, and domestic violence. When you have such concerns, come to us for accurate legal advice and compassionate service.
