Glen Burnie Same-Sex Family Lawyer
Between 2012 and 2013, momentous legal changes have occurred for gay and lesbian couples. In particular, the state of Maryland has determined that legal equality and marriage is appropriate for same-sex couples.
At the Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, we have stayed on top of cutting-edge legislation through these past few years. Our same-sex family law attorney is available to provide knowledgeable and cost-effective legal counsel and representation in:
- Issues for non-married couples who are separating or wish to legally protect their rights
- Issues for married couples, including divorce and child custody
- Premarital and domestic partnership agreements, which are as important for LGBT couples as they are for straight couples
- Adoption, to ensure you have legal rights regarding your partner’s child or children
Marital Equality for Same-Sex Couples in Maryland
On March 1, 2012, Maryland governor Martin O’Malley signed the Civil Marriage Protection Act, which allowed same-sex couples to receive civil marriage licenses. The governor’s action was confirmed by the general public on November 6, 2012, when voters approved Question 6 on the ballot. This gave Maryland the distinction of being one of the first states to promote same-sex marriage by popular vote.
On January 1, 2013, the new law will go into effect, making same-sex marriage legal throughout Maryland. Nobody can quite predict the full ramifications of this new law on the gay and lesbian community, or how legal precedent will change. One thing is certain: Questions and concerns will continue to arise as the courts begin to deal with same-sex marriage for the first time. This is why it is critical to have a skilled family law lawyer like Mr. Mohink on your side.
