Prior to 2015, individuals in the LGBT community were afforded little to no rights in family legal matters. Rights, if any, varied from state to state but were prominently non-existent throughout the country. It was not until the early 2000’s that the topic began to garner attention in the state of Connecticut.
The Supreme Court of the United States ruled in 2015 that same-sex marriage was legal in all 50 states, and in 2017 declared same-sex couples be considered in the same ways opposite-sex couples are, in regards to adoption. While major victories for the LGBT community, the relatively new or recent laws are still evolving, and thus individuals are not receiving the protection and representation they need. This is where the attorneys at Larracuente & Goulden come in to help.
