LGBTQ+ Family Law Attorneys

Without question, legal issues associated with LGBTQ+ rights and family law have been some of the most rapidly evolving areas of the legal industry in recent years.

After all, less than a decade ago, LGBTQ+ marriages were not recognized by most states. This issue was finally resolved with the June 2015 United States Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which requires all U.S. states to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and for all states to recognize same-sex marriage licenses issued by other states.

The attorneys at Marler Law Partners are committed to relentless study of court decisions, policy changes and upcoming challenges to laws discriminating against the LGBTQ+ community.

Outside of just marriage, numerous other issues have been resolved by the federal and state courts, such as disputes related to government and employer benefits, property rights and other areas of family law.

These issues can concern “second-parent adoptions,” where in some states, a child born to one party in a same-sex marriage is legally considered to have only one parent – the one who is biologically connected to the child – forcing the other parent to have to adopt the child.

Other issues concern grandparents and custody, divorce, surrogacy and other swiftly changing and legally challenging situations.
