Legal Representation In Same-Sex Divorce And Other Family Law Issues
Same-sex marriage became legal in Maryland on Jan. 1, 2013. The Civil Marriage Protection Act allows same-sex couples to obtain a civil marriage license. The law likewise protects religious institutions that don’t wish to perform marriages in violation of their doctrine. This law was approved by Maryland voters on November 6, 2012, making our state one of the first to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. This law was validated by Maryland voters in November of 2012, making our state one of the first to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote.
