Chester Same-Sex Marriage Attorneys
Reputable Family Law Representation for LGBTQ Families
In October 2013, same-sex marriage was legalized in the state of New Jersey. In 2015, the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all states. As a result, same-sex partners can now enjoy all state and federal rights, benefits, and responsibilities that opposite-sex marriages enjoy. Before they could legally marry, same-sex couples were only allowed to enter domestic partnerships or civil unions with limited rights and benefits. Under the new laws, same-sex partners may now need the same legal representation as other married partners for actions like prenuptial agreements, divorce, child support, child custody, alimony, and more.
