Protecting Your Rights Matters
New York State legalized same-sex marriage in 2011. As a result, persons in same-sex relationships are now afforded the same rights and privileges regarding marriage and divorce as their heterosexual counterparts. The area of same-sex matrimonial and family law is an evolving area that requires the assistance of knowledgeable and skilled attorneys.
It is important for a person contemplating marriage to protect their assets in the event of a future divorce. Our office has guided and advised persons seeking to enter into a same-sex marriage on how best to protect their current and future assets by entering into a pre-nuptial agreement.
Our knowledgeable attorneys have also advised and guided persons in same-sex marriages through the divorce process. This includes providing counsel on issues pertaining to spousal maintenance, custody of and access to children, equitable distribution, child custody, and family offense matters. It is important that a person engaged in a divorce proceeding, or contemplating a divorce, know what their rights are and how best to protect themselves and their children.
