Same Sex Relationships

The Supreme Court has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and now same-sex couples are entitled to marriage equality under federal law, at least in states that recognize same-sex marriage such as New York. The Supreme Court’s decision provides LGBT couples with the same rights and benefits as same-sex couples when starting or ending a marriage.

We work with LGBT couples through mediation and collaborative practice to address the issues that may be unique to their particular situation and to protect and preserve their rights at all stages of their marriages.
