Columbia LGBT Lawyer in Columbia, SC
Committed to Protecting the Rights of Same Sex Couples
At Carrie A. Warner, Attorney at Law, we provide innovative legal services
for individuals involved in gay or lesbian relationships to ensure that
their children and assets are protected to the fullest extent under the
law. Whether you are seeking
adoption to grow your family, want to create a
prenuptial agreement, or are facing a
divorce, our Columbia LGBT family lawyers are fully committed to representing
you and helping you realize your goals.
Gay couples can file joint tax returns as married, both federally and statewide—and
each spouse may list the other as a beneficiary on their State and federal
retirement accounts. A married spouse can now have equal say in medical
and financial decision making on behalf of their significant other. In
addition, spouses can inherit from the other according to State law, and
they may list one another on his or her health insurance policy. Spouses
are also ensured federal benefits as a result of the death (of the other
spouse), whether it be VA benefits, and military retirement.
