We support LGBT and same-sex families in NC
The attorney and staff at Haas & Associates, P.A. know that families come in many different forms. We help two-parent families, same-sex couples, single parents, multi-generational families, foster families and those related not by blood, but by love. Regardless of the form the family takes, our first concern is to achieve security for all families and to put the interests of the children first. Our goal is to develop creative and effective solutions to protect LGBT families in partnership, estate planning, adoption and parentage matters.
As of October 10, 2014, same-sex couples are now allowed to get legally married in North Carolina, and their out-of state marriages will also be recognized as of the date of marriage. As a result, same-sex married couples are now subject to the same laws as heterosexual married couples; which means they can take advantage of the many benefits associated with marriage, as well as be subject to the same obligations that accompany marriage. After serving the LGBT community for over a decade, we at Haas & Associates, P.A. understand the many ramifications that result from the overturning of Amendment One (NC's previous constitutional ban on same-sex marriages). Consult with an attorney at Haas & Associates, P.A. to learn more about the possible ramifications of your current or anticipated same-sex marriage, and feel free to review our frequently-asked-questions about marriage, divorce and parentage.
