Same-Sex Marriage


We provide all services to same-sex couples including pre- and postnuptial agreements, divorce, child support, child custody, post-divorce litigation and estate planning.


Illinois began recognizing same sex marriage in 2011. In 2015, the Supreme Court holding in Obergefell v. Hodges ensured equal protection of all marriages in all states. Our legal system is still adapting to this sweeping change and many new issues have been created due to this alteration.


At Luckett & Ashford we understand that dissolving a marriage or civil union can be a challenging time for our clients. We know that even the small things matter and every issue will be heard by one of our experienced attorneys. The attorneys at Luckett & Ashford have the experience and knowledge necessary to address the growing legal needs of the LGBT community. Let us guide you through creating a pre- or postnuptial agreement, complex custody matters separation and divorce.
