Formalize Your Relationship — Protect Your Children — Secure Your Financial Future
In many ways, the legal status of same-sex couples who are involved in Colorado civil unions or who have been married in other jurisdictions is very tenuous and murky. One thing, however, is very clear: Same-sex couples need additional legal documents. These documents can ensure that they have unassailable rights to common property, legal custody and rights over their children and that, when necessary, they can act legally on behalf of their partners.
LGBT family law clients in the Denver Highlands have unique family law concerns, and Front Range Family Law is on the cutting edge of protecting LGBT families. Our services help LGBT families transform their emotional commitment to one another into a legally binding relationship that is respected by the courts and other institutions. Founding attorney Rebecca Gumaer has the experience and legal dexterity to ensure that you and your family are protected.
Helping You Avoid The Legal Limitations Of Civil Unions And Same-Sex Marriages
Denver residents who travel to jurisdictions where civil unions or same-sex marriages are not recognized are especially at risk. In the event of a medical or family emergency, that state may fail to acknowledge and uphold the legal rights and responsibilities of partners in these relationships.
At the end of the day, Ms. Gumaer's goal is to ensure that every LGBT family who leaves our Wheat Ridge office has documents which will ensure that they have all of the rights due to family members that heterosexual couples have. More importantly, she works to ensure that LGBT families can equally exercise those same rights and responsibilities in Colorado — where civil unions are recognized — as they can when they are visiting Texas — where they are not recognized.
Our firm offers essential and protective legal services to LGBT family law clients in civil unions and same-sex marriages from other jurisdictions. Through our extensive family law experience, we know the limitations of civil unions and same-sex marriages.
