The History of LGBT Rights in Washington

Washington State is a pioneer in the area of LGBT rights. In 2006, it became the first state to pass legislation granting certain rights to gay partners, and six years later, it was one of the first states to legalize marriage between gay individuals.
These milestones in the history and development of LGBT rights have made Washington State one of the most progressive and welcoming jurisdictions for the LGBT community. Currently, gay couples enjoy the same rights as other couples regarding divorce, property division, custody and visitation, and adoption.
Although family law problems still exist for the LGBT community, it is undeniable that
Washington State is likely to solve them in a just and equitable fashion.

Reviews from Our Clients

I hired Mark Hodgson for a divorce in Spokane. He was open, friendly, and gave me great advice and counsel. Mark was honest with me about my case and worked hard to resolve all of my issues quickly. He responded to my phone calls and questions every time. He was WONDERFUL in my hearing and got me alimony, child support, and the parenting plan that my children needed. I had two other lawyers before Mark and he is far superior to my previous counsel. He fought hard for me and he knew the law. I would and will recommend him to everyone that i know.
These situations are never easy. Deciding to get a lawyer then choosing one was a very hard decision. I spoke to a few people that have been thru divorce and Mark’s name came up more than once. I went and met with him, his business partners and Casey his assistant. They were all friendly, professional and most importantly for me nonjudgmental. He is very educated on divorce with children and keeps in mind what is best for the kids! He answered my questions and didn’t make me feel belittled as other lawyers did. Thank you Mark Hodgson and team you are all very appreciated!
Called Mark Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving. He got us in that Friday the day after Thanksgiving. We decided to hire him and he made the time to start the process of paperwork that Sunday. It was great he did this so my wife and I didn’t have to miss work and our case was a time sensitive issue. The few times I’ve had to emailed him he seem to get right back to us with answers.

  • Can LGBTQ+ couples be refused by an adoption agency because of their sexual orientation in Washington?

    Gay adoption rights have come a long way in Washington State. However, although these couples are permitted to adopt children within Washington, private adoption agencies may still refuse to work with these couples based solely on the fact that they share the same sex.

  • My partner and I are breaking up and I am covered through my partner’s employer’s health insurance policy as a domestic partner. How can I maintain my health insurance coverage in Washington?

    Health care plans are complex and controlled by a variety of federal, state, and local laws. The answer to this question depends largely on the policy coverage details and relevant insurance laws at every level. Contact an LGBTQ family law attorney for help.

  • Can a same-sex partner be granted parental rights over a child they did not biologically create in Washington?

    Yes. Many instances exist in which a same-sex partner can be granted parental rights over a non-biological child in Washington State. This can be accomplished in various ways, including by way of adoption, through legitimate surrogacy arrangements, or through parentage orders.
