Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Family Law Issues
Garden City Family Attorney
Since the introduction of the
Marriage Equality Act in mid-2011, same-sex couples have been legally allowed to marry in New
York State. Prior to the enactment of this law, the state only recognized
same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries allowing these unions.
Due to the many changes that have occurred and continue to occur with laws
involving LGBT couples, it can be hard to know where you and your partner
stand on many important issues. With the help of a knowledgeable Garden
City family lawyer, you can navigate the area of
family law as it applies to you and use it to your best advantage.
