Andrew StoltLaw. Todd Sivia Henry Street T: Often, LGBT couples consider second-parent adoption used in step-parent adoptions so that the biological child of one spouse can legally be the child of the other spouse. Our firm can help you with either process to ensure that this often painful experience is completed smoothly. If you are not the biological parent and have not adopted your child, there are some limited options for you to be able to pursue visitation rights. For couples who choose to not enter into an Illinois Civil Union, they may still register as domestic partners with employers or in the counties and cities that continue to provide a registry. Oakbrook Terrace.
Although a homosexual marriage is now just as legally-legitimate as a heterosexual marriage, the fact that the law was implemented so recently can create certain side-implications for a divorce.
If you entered into a civil union, gay marriage or substantially similar domestic partnership in another state or country before June 1,and also broke up before June 1,but were unable to legally dissolve your civil union, gay marriage or substantially similar domestic partnership formed in another state or country, then you are still unionized.
