Family Law For Same Sex Couples In Minneapolis

Family law issues have always affected same-sex couples, but it was not until August 1, 2013, that same-sex marriages were recognized in Minnesota. This recent change in legislation has helped LGBT couples enjoy the benefits of marriage, but how do the new laws affect families who had previously handled issues through customized means?

At Dove Fretland, PLLP, we have helped unmarried and married couples negotiate and litigate challenging family law issues for years. We know how to balance compassion with assertiveness in these often emotional matters. Ultimately, our clients need legal results in LGBT family law and we offer the experience they need to ensure their best interests are protected.

Contact our office online via email or by telephone at 952-479-4376 (toll free at 800-579-0664) to arrange an initial consultation. We can help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of various family law options and guide you through the process with confidence.

Handling Everything From Property Agreements To Adoption

The benefits of marriage go beyond rights to property and parental responsibilities. Thanks to the legalization of same-sex marriage in Minnesota, gay or lesbian couples can enjoy rights to their spouse's pension or retirement benefits, insurance benefits and other estate issues that used to require customized legal documents.

Whether you had previously drafted domestic partnership agreements or have never been married, our attorneys can answer your questions about how Minnesota same-sex marriage and divorce laws affect you.

We will work with you one-on-one to discuss your options in:

  • Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements
  • Adoption and parental responsibilities
  • Name changes
  • Wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other estate documents
  • Real estate property rights
