Glen Burnie Same-Sex Marriage Lawyer
If you are a same-sex couple planning to get married in Maryland, or if you were already married in another state and moved here, you likely have questions about your legal rights and options under Maryland’s new marriage amendment. This law goes into effect on January 1, 2013, and is intended to grant gay and lesbian couples the same official status as heterosexual married couples.
Addressing Your Concerns About Children, Finances and the Future
The Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, has offices in Glen Burnie and Columbia. Our same-sex marriage attorneys are here to help you navigate the new changes to state law and make sure your rights are protected. We handle the full spectrum of family law issues for same-sex married couples, including:
Premarital agreements: Making sure your rights and responsibilities are clearly spelled out, should the relationship come to an end
Divorce: Dissolving the marriage through mediation, collaboration or litigation, depending on your needs
Child custody and support: Determining with whom a child should live and how much child support the other party should pay after divorce
Property division: Protecting your share of joint bank accounts, retirement accounts, real estate and other assets
Guiding You Through Uncharted Legal Waters
Although same-sex couples hope that their marriages will be treated with the same legal consideration as those of opposite-sex couples, the fact is that it is extremely difficult to predict precisely how Maryland’s new law will play out.
Because all law is based on precedent — and this is unprecedented territory — having the counsel and guidance of a highly skilled family law lawyer has never been more important. For instance, resolving same-sex custody disputes or characterizing retirement accounts as marital or non-marital property is challenging enough without adding the further complexity of a brand new law.
