Contract Issues for Same-Sex Couples

In 2011, New York State passed the Marriage Equality Act allowing same-sex couples to legally marry. Even though New York State now recognizes same-sex marriages, same-sex couples still face a number of legal issues involving separation or divorce, property, custody, and their rights. In addition, there are other legal matters to consider, such as whether a couple should get married in New York if they have a marriage license from another jurisdiction.

If you are a same sex couple in New York City, Westchester County, or Rockland County and want to plan for your future, or you are facing a legal dispute, it is important to know your rights and your options under the law.
