Members of Illinois' LGBTQ community won the right to marry when Governor Pat Quinn signed the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act in November 2013. This was a momentous win for the LGBTQ community.
Marriage comes with rights and responsibilities, and when a relationship comes to an end, these rights and responsibilities must be sorted out through a divorce action. The law firm of Jill M. Metz & Associates offers divorce services to individuals throughout Andersonville, Lakeview, Uptown, Edgewater and the Greater Chicago area in Cook County to ensure they are protected throughout the divorce process.
