New York City Same Sex Attorney | Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC

On June 24, 2011 the New York State Legislature passed the Marriage Equality Act. The act, which allows marriage by same sex couples went into effect 30 days later on July 24, 2011.

Under the Act, State rights, protections, and obligations had by heterosexual spouses are now also experienced by same sex spouses. More accurately, rights, protections, and obligations are also experienced by same sex spouses …so long as they remain in New York or another state that recognizes same sex marriages. This last point is fraught with many complexities, both legal and practical.

Many lawyers are advising their LGBTQ clients, to call their lawyer before they call their mother to break the news of a pending marriage. While this may sound like a joke, marriage is not joke, and the complexities that may arise in a same sex marriage are equally serious, if not more so, than the issues that arise in heterosexual marriages.

Contact us today online or by telephone at 212-792-9501 to arrange a free initial consultation with a qualified New York City divorce attorney with experience in same sex matters.

By Far, the Most Dedicated, Trustworthy and Hands on Attorney I Have Ever Come Across!

“It took me going through 3 attorneys to realize that, no matter how experienced an attorney is, if he/she does not have “TIME” for your case, you will have the worst experience and possibly the worst results. Ms. Poppe is one attorney that I can say hands down, dedicated real time to my divorce case which was rather complex and unusual. She was very efficient and kept me informed every step of the way, which was extremely helpful. She was quick to respond to all my emails and telephone calls. Not knowing where your case is heading or worse not understanding fully your available options is the most stressful scenario and anyone who has been through a divorce like I have will totally agree. If you are looking for a dedicated, trustworthy, knowledgeable and hands-on attorney, who will fight your case every step of the way then look no further, Ms. Poppe is your guy!”
