Massachusetts upholds domestic partner's legal rights as parent

Massachusetts continues to pave the way for the rights of same-sex domestic partners. In a new decision by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, a California domestic partnership was held to be equivalent to a marriage in Massachusetts. Worcester family law will undoubtedly be affected as the court also held that children born after the domestic partnership was entered into are the legal children of both parents.

Equality in Marriage Continues to be an Issue in Massachusetts

A recent appeals court decision struck down parts of a federal law that says marriage is only between a man and a woman. The issue is before the court again, and the Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has requested that the U.S. Supreme Court uphold that court decision. If the Supreme Court takes the case, it would be the first gay marriage case heard by the highest court in the United States.
