Legal Rights And Protections For Gay And Lesbian Couples
Thanks to the historic 2015 ruling from the Supreme Court, gay and lesbian couples are now free to marry in all 50 states and enjoy the same constitutional rights that heterosexual couples have always had. At the law office of Ami L. DiLorenzo, P.A., our Ocala family law attorney can assist you in all legal aspects of a same-sex marriage, from prenuptial agreements to divorce.
- Florida laws uphold that same-sex couples are now afforded the following:
- The right to marry
- The right to adopt children, or have children via a surrogate
- Recognition for both partners as a child’s parent
- Ability to visit and act on behalf of an incapacitated partner
- Automatic inheritance of a partner’s estate
Contact us today to find out how we can assist you with your legal matters.
With the laws in place, the dissolution of a gay marriage should be indistinguishable from that of a heterosexual marriage. We are constantly striving to maintain a working knowledge of the laws governing same-sex family law, and fight to ensure that our clients are treated fairly. Not long ago, a parent could legally lose custody of their child due to their sexuality, and asset division between a gay or lesbian couple in a dissolving domestic partnership could have been immensely tricky. Fortunately, our country is taking steps to equalize, and we are here to help you take advantage of these new rights.
