Issues Facing Same-Sex Couples

After several years of difficult litigation, same-sex couples now can get legally married in North Carolina. The state recognizes gay marriage, and these couples have the same rights conveyed to those in traditional marriages. While the advancement of LGBT rights is a welcome change, it is important that the same-sex partners know how this will impact their specific situation.

At Stewart, Schmidlin, & Bullock, PLLC, we have seen how the laws addressing same-sex couples have changed over the past few years. We have been actively involved in this process and understand the issues facing same-sex couples. Should you and your spouse experience problems in your marriage, it is extremely important that you work with a law firm that knows how to address the issues that need to be resolved.
