Has your civil union or marriage been ignored or treated as invalid in Illinois?

Confusion about what a civil union is can lead to disrespect of same-sex couples,

  • by insurance companies and other businesses,
  • by employers.

While not all unfair treatment leads to legal action, knowing more about your rights will help you respond.
