Through landmark legislation that passed in Springfield, IL last November, Same Sex Marriage has come in effect as of June 1, 2014. With this new legislation comes many questions and even more gray areas that have yet to be discussed or tested by the court and employers. Questions such as: What benefits are there for same sex couples? How may business be affected by marriage equality? Now that there is marriage equality, how will these couples be impacted in the courtroom in case of a dissolution of their own? To learn more about these questions and more, tune in to this podcast with Family Law attorney, Jenet Pequeno of Lavelle Law, Ltd.
