Assisting LGBT Clients With Family Law Concerns

Although same-sex marriage is now legal in Maryland, many challenges still remain. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals must navigate an ever-changing legal landscape and deal with numerous questions such as:

  • If you were a part of a civil union in a different state, does it convert to a marriage when you move to Maryland?
  • If you and your partner are considering having children through surrogacy but you're not married, how can you ensure you have equal parental rights?
  • If you're getting divorced, do the property division calculations only take into account the period you were married, or do they count the time you spent as domestic partners?
  • Do you have to dissolve a domestic partnership with one person in order to legally marry another?

At the law firm of Engel Law Group P.C., we are here to answer your questions and protect your legal rights. Our lawyers have been serving people in Baltimore and across Maryland for more than five decades.
