Same-Sex Marriage/Divorce

In Illinois, same-sex civil unions have been legally recognized since 2011, and same-sex marriage was signed into law in November 2013, but sometimes same-sex marriages end in divorce.

If you are experiencing or anticipating a divorce, you may need the help of an experienced attorney — an attorney familiar with the developing area of LGBT family law. Our firm knows LGBT family law and is ready to assist you.
