Legal Solutions for LGBT Families in Pennsylvania
Even if marriage between same-sex couples is not legal in Pennsylvania, there are still a number of legal means of establishing the same sort of protections that married couples have.
We can establish legally enforceable contracts regarding property division, alimony and other important issues.
If you and your partner have adopted children, your child custody and child support matters can be addressed through the family court.
Were You Married in Another State?
If you were married in a state that does recognize same-sex marriages and you wish to get divorced in Pennsylvania, you face a complicated legal process. Currently, Pennsylvania does not recognize same-sex marriages, civil unions or domestic partnerships established in other states.
Our attorneys can help you determine how best to proceed and explore other options for achieving some of the goals you would achieve in a divorce.
