The Legal Handbook for LGBTQ Floridians and Their Families

Spring 2015:

The Legal Handbook for LGBTQ Floridians and Their Famiies will be updated in the coming months to reflect the implications of legal marriage for same-sex couples. The information in this handbook is still relevant and applicable for people who cannot or choose not to marry. Single Floridians, including all unmarried couples, should find this information helpful.
