Same-Sex Family Law
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.
At the law office of Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., we offer more than 30 years of family law experience. Our firm has an extensive background handling domestic partnership agreements and establishing prenuptial agreements for same-sex couples. Founding lawyer Keith Schulefand has a clear understanding of how federal and state laws apply to same-sex couples planning to get married. He is available to help address any of your legal concerns or establish a premarital agreement as a safeguard.
A Firm That Supports Gay And Lesbian Couples
Keith B. Schulefand has 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. Our law firm provides 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. We are 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.
Our law firm is 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, we are here to protect your rights and make sure there are no surprises.
