Legal Help for Same Sex Couples in Long Island
After the passing of the Marriage Equality Act in June of 2011, same sex couples are now able to legally marry in the state of New York. While the state's stance on
same sex marriage once presented specific difficulties for the GLBT community, it has finally come the time for the chains to be lifted and the restrictions to be diminished.

We recently handled a successful appeal for a client who was in a same sex marriage. After filing a custody petition with the Family Court, the court ordered a child protective investigation concerning her children. This order was found to be unwarranted and our appeal was successful in overturning the order. One of the issues we brought up was the possibility that the order had been filed as the result of unlawful discrimination.
