Protecting What Matters Most

Experienced Family Law Representation For Same-Sex Couples In New York

New York’s Marriage Equality Act and a 2015 United States Supreme Court decision invalidating state bans on same-sex marriage have opened the door for same-sex couples in New York and throughout the nation to say their vows. This has also left same-sex couples in need of experienced family law attorneys.

I am family law attorney Keith Schulefand and at the law office of Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., I offer more than 30 years of legal experience in family law. I have an extensive background handling domestic partnership agreements and establishing prenuptial agreements for same-sex couples.

I have a clear understanding of how federal and state laws apply to same-sex couples planning to get married. I am available to help address any of your legal concerns or establish a premarital agreement as a safeguard.

Prenuptial Agreements For The New York LGBT Community

I have extensive experience representing members of the LGBT community in New York. Similar to other couples getting married, no one ever enters into a marriage anticipating a divorce. Yet, the unimaginable can happen. I provide prenuptial agreement services to help same-sex couples address important issues upfront.

A premarital agreement can be simple or complex, depending on our clients’ individual situations. I am available to help clients establish prenuptial agreements outlining how their finances and other important issues can be handled upfront in an effort to prevent avoidable disputes. If a divorce becomes a concern, a prenuptial agreement can provide a framework for how property and custody issues can be handled in an effort to avoid a contested divorce.

I am committed to offering comprehensive family law services to same-sex couples. Whether you are interested in legally changing your name, establishing your rights as a nonbiological parent or want to understand the federal and state benefits available to you, I am here to protect your rights and make sure there are no surprises.
