Since 2015, same-sex marriage has been declared legal in the State of Florida. Same-sex marriage, like any marriage, has set laws. What exactly are you entitled to if you are in a same- sex marriage? Are you aware of the laws if you become separated or divorced? It is important to know these laws before you enter into a same-sex marriage or any marriage, and understand what rights you’re entitled to!
Tax relief, medical rights, spousal benefits, as well as inheritance rights are some of the benefits that you receive when married. You are given the same rights, as in a heterosexual marriage, in the State of Florida, and we want to make you feel like you are safe and protected under the law at all times.
If you have questions about any specific rights regarding your same-sex marriage, please call us. If you are going through a separation or divorce with your partner and want to know about assets, inheritance, or spousal support, we are also available to help you along this path.
