LGBT - Sensitive Issues in Family Law

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.
