Assisting Individuals With Same-Sex Family Law Issues
Compassionate, Experienced Legal Representation
The United States Supreme Court has finally conceded that marriage is a fundamental right to which all individuals are entitled. The marriage laws which previously applied only to a man and a woman now apply to all couples wishing to marry. This sea change has clarified the role of courts. They now have clear legal authority over the manner in which couples separate, divorce, assume financial obligations of support, and share their children.
At our northern San Diego County offices, we have served clients with disputes regarding same sex civil unions and parenting rights. We are now privileged to serve clients in same-sex marriages with the full array of issues to which they have become entitled.
We Provide A Wide Range Of Services
We are pleased to serve ALL of our clients with regard to marital privileges and obligations, rights and obligations arising from cohabitation, rights and obligations related to divorce, and rights and obligations of being a parent. These can include:
