DuPage County Same Sex Divorce Lawyers
Skilled Guidance for Same Sex Divorce in Lisle, Downers Grove and Naperville
On June 1, 2014, the Illinois Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act became law, allowing same sex couples the right to marry in Illinois. A previous law had already been enacted in 2011 allowing civil unions for both same sex and heterosexual couples and affording them the same protections, benefits and legal obligations as married couples. Now that the new law has taken effect, civil unions and same sex marriages are treated virtually the same. Unfortunately, as is the case with many heterosexual marriages, some same sex unions do not work out. If you are seeking a civil union/same sex divorce in Illinois, it is important to have experienced divorce attorneys in your corner to ensure that your interests are protected.
