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 based on the sexual orientation of the parents.
With The Supreme Court's ruling, it is obvious that the laws concerning same-sex marriage, divorce, and other family law proceedings are constantly changing, and our same-sex couples lawyers in Suffolk County take care to remain up to date on these.
