California Same-Sex Marriages Attorney
Entering into a same-sex union establishes certain rights and legal advantages, much like that of a traditional marriage. Similarly, when a same-sex marriage dissolves, couples must undergo the same legally necessary procedures as in a divorce. However, same sex unions do not give partners the full rights and protections as traditional couples, especially in estate planning and asset distribution affairs and in end-of-life decision making. Whether entering into or dissolving a same-sex union, it is important that you understand your rights and obligations under the law.
