Same-Sex Family Law

There has been a profound legal shift in how same-sex couples are viewed in the eyes of the law. Although Illinois has recognized same-sex marriage since 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court has now held that all same-sex marriage is legal throughout the country. This means that same-sex couples now have the same protections and benefits as straight couples when it comes to determining family law matters.

Dedicated Representation For Issues Facing Same-Sex Couples

Same-sex couples face the same issues and problems as other couples. Unfortunately, some marriages just do not last. With legal recognition of same-sex marriage now in place, a same-sex divorce will encompass the same issues as a divorce involving straight couples, including:

These and other issues will be decided under the same laws as those that have governed marriages traditionally. However, there are still some ongoing questions regarding the scope of the Supreme Court's decision, and local government agencies may still make things difficult for same-sex couples. In addition, the law may have different applications for couples who have not legally married. Our attorneys can explain how your case is likely to be handled and help you explore your options for moving forward.
