Legal same-sex unions in Costa Rica have taken a step closer to reality with the Desamparados Family Court acceptance an application by two men, seeking recogniition for the union and and their rights.

For the Movimiento Diversidad (Diversity Movement) this is only a first step.

The lawyer of the Movimiento, Marco Castillo, said that the application will be treated as summary judgement given that there is no established procedure for such cases. In explaining the process, Castillo said that the next step is for the parties and witnesses to be called to testify before the judge.

The expectation by Castillo and the Moviemiento Diversidad is that the judge “will rule in favour of the couple”.

Cartago Bishop, Monseñor José Francisco Ulloa, however, is confident that the Desamparados Court will reject the request. Ulloa said, “if the judge rejects the application it will create case law on the subject”.

So far, eight same-sex couples have applied for the same, the right obtained with the reforms to the Ley de la Persona Joven (Young Person Act) earlier this month.
