The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling granted to same-sex couples the same rights and protections as heterosexual couples.
Couples who have partnership agreements signed before June 2015 or prenuptial agreements made in other states should consult an attorney to see how the change in the law affects them.
Because some couples married in other states or the District of Columbia have moved to Michigan with their children, the impact of the law requires a case-by-case analysis. We recommend that same-sex couples seek legal counsel to review the standing each party has to child custody and to have an agreement that keeps the welfare of their children at the forefront.
It will take time before the changes for same-sex couples are well established. Schedule a consultation to discuss your situation and how we might be able to assist.
