While New York is arguably a more progressive state than many, the laws governing same-sex marriage and same-sex divorce are still evolving. New York State passed the Marriage Equality Act in 2011, but it took the U.S. Supreme Court another four years to legalize same sex marriage nationally. That’s why it is so important to choose a lawyer who is well-versed in the unique challenges facing members of the LGBTQ community. An experienced same-sex marriage lawyer is the best resource for handling any legal challenges you may encounter over the course of your marriage.
Our LGBT clients experience many of the same dilemmas as heterosexual couples, but same-sex couples face many additional legal obstacles. Here’s how we can help:
You may wonder why it’s so important to have a same-sex marriage attorney with extensive experience representing the LGBTQ clients. When your family is facing the emotional trauma of same-sex divorce or a custody battle, you must have legal counsel by your side that you can trust. We handle confidential or time sensitive information with the utmost confidence because we understand how even the smallest detail can impact your case. This is particularly important for transgender, intersex, and gender-nonconforming individuals, as the general public’s perception of gender fluidity is evolving. You want to feel confident that your attorney is on your side and will respect you, both in the courtroom and out of it. A positive attorney-client relationship can help you navigate any legal issue without adding unnecessary stress to the situation.
