Bowie Same-Sex Marriage Lawyers

Knowledgeable Practitioners Of Same-Sex Family Law

Same-sex marriage is legal in Maryland beginning January 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 performing marriages in violation of their doctrine.

This law was validated by Maryland voters in the November of 2012, making our state one of the first to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote.

Though the state has shown leadership in the area of gay and lesbian rights, federal limitations remain in place. Same-sex couples are not allowed to file federal income taxes jointly, or to receive Social Security survivors' benefits.
