IMPACT OF GAY MARRIAGES AND ADOPTIONS IN STATES THAT DO NOT PERMIT IT

A wide range of complicated legal issues sit upon the horizon in the clash between States that allow rights for gays and States that don’t. The wall seems to have fallen blocking gay marriage, and those married in States where it is legal will be moving into States where it is not. With regard to adoption, it has been reported that there is a “stratospheric increase” in gay couple adoptions. About 32,571 adopted children were living with same sex couples in 2009. Clarion Ledger, Oct. 21, 2011. What happens when those legally adopted children move to States that prohibit gay adoptions and/or gay marriage? What will be the child support obligations if the gay couple separates. Attorneys, Courts and couples need to be preparing for these and other tough issues.
