Family Law Attorneys For Same-Sex Couples And LGBT Individuals
In October 2014, the United States Supreme Court denied review of several rulings that various state bans violated the U.S. Constitution. The result is historic: Same-sex couples can now lawfully marry in Virginia as well as in several other states where this was not previously possible.
The legalization of same-sex marriage in Virginia essentially enables same-sex couples to exercise all the same rights as opposite-sex couples that marry. It also means that if you were married in another jurisdiction where same-sex marriage is legal, your marriage is now legally recognized throughout the Commonwealth.
At Lutins & Pilgreen, PC, in Roanoke, Virginia, our lawyers provide complete family law services to same-sex couples and individuals. Whatever legal concerns you have, we offer a initial consultation to answer your questions.
