Frequently Asked Questions for Our LGBTQ Family Law Attorneys in Mooresville, North Carolina
Are Civil Unions or Domestic Partnerships Legally Equivalent to Marriage For Same-Sex Couples?
While civil unions and domestic partnerships are methods of formally recognizing same-sex couples, these relationships usually do not confer the same privileges and benefits as marriage does. However, there are domestic partnership agreements that provide legal protections for both parties and their futures.
How Can My Same-Sex Spouse Qualify for a Marriage Visa?
A same-sex spouse would qualify for a marriage visa in the same way an opposite-sex spouse would. In 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the federal law that defined marriage as solely between a man and a woman. This Supreme Court ruling now requires that all federal agencies treat spouses in the same manner, whether they are a part of same-sex or opposite-sex marriage.
If you are applying for a marriage visa for your same-sex spouse, you must first either be a United States citizen or a legal permanent resident of the United States. If one of those is true, we can help you file a Petition for an Alien Relative, and will prepare you for the next steps, so no legal detail is left to chance.
Can I Provide For My Same-Sex Spouse or Partner in My Estate Plans?
Yes. Establishing a will, trust, or other estate plans is highly recommended for same-sex couples, whether married or unmarried, to protect against legal challenges from family or other individuals who would take property away from the deceased’s significant other, against the true, but perhaps unarticulated, intentions of the deceased partner.
