Same-Sex Marriage is Here

Posted on: December 10th, 2012 by admin No Comments

After the Maryland legislature passed a law to permit same-sex marriage, Maryland voters approved a ballot measure that makes the law valid. Beginning next year, same-sex couples will be able to marry and share the same rights as all other married couples. Before getting married, we encourage same-sex couples (and other couples) to consider Pre-Marital Agreements—especially those who have been together for a while and have accumulated assets.

A Pre-Marital Agreement permits the parties to decide before the marriage issues of property rights and support, avoid arguments in the event of divorce, and clarify financial issues. With divorce rates so high, even with the best intentions it would be foolish not to consider making a Pre-Marital Agreement so that if divorce does happen, you will have already resolved all issues between you. This leads to a less traumatic and less costly divorce.

We can help you prepare a Pre-Marital Agreement.  Just contact us to schedule an appointment.
