Cherry Hill Divorce Lawyer

Same-Sex Marriage

As a result of a recent New Jersey Supreme Court ruling, same-sex marriage is legal in this state. Married same-sex couples are entitled to the same rights and privileges as married opposite-sex couples, but civil unions and domestic partnerships do not automatically become marriages. This has the potential to create confusion for same-sex couples, particularly in relation to same-sex divorce and prenuptial agreements.

Richard C. Klein understands the law pertaining to civil unions, domestic partnerships and marriage.

The Law Is Dynamic And So Are Our Attorneys

We have more than 40 years of collective experience and take pride in our cutting-edge understanding of family law issues. Our lawyers understand the legal differences between marriage, civil union and domestic partnership. As the law has evolved, our knowledge has grown. We are able to assist clients with family law matters stemming from any type of legally recognized union, including custody rights, spousal support and property division.

Civil unions and domestic partnerships left gaps in couples’ rights, making marriage a welcome option. Legalization of marriage has no effect on a same-sex couple’s civil union or domestic partnership and legal matters that arise in those relationships will be governed by the terms of those contracts. We can help you understand your rights and obligations.
