For many years, state and federal law did not recognize same-sex and other non-traditional marriages. Fortunately, sweeping changes in the laws over the past years mean that marriages between two men and two women are now legally recognized. Since same-sex marriages were legalized, LGBTQ families have encountered unique legal issues.

If you are confused about how your rights and responsibilities may have changed since you initially adopted your children or entered a relationship, our New Jersey LGBTQ family lawyers can assist you.
