Navigating Same-Sex Marriage And Divorce In Colorado

Over the past decade, the possibility of same-sex marriage has been in a state of extreme flux. Back in 2006, Colorado voters chose to ban same-sex marriage by adding an amendment to the state constitution. Eight years later, in 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively struck down that ban. Today, couples are able to legally marry in Colorado regardless of their gender or sexual orientation.

However, the extreme fluctuations in the law — plus the conflict of having both civil unions and matrimony available to same-sex couples — means it is wise to have professional legal guidance. I am Boulder-based attorney Tucker M. Katz, and I am here to provide the detailed legal advice you need. I work hard to stay on the cutting-edge of legal developments in the family law arena, and I can explain how to take advantage of your rights while diligently protecting your finances and future.
