Yes. According to an announcement made by United States Attorney General Eric Holder on February 8, 2014, the United States Bankruptcy Courts will give legally married same sex couples the same status as other married couples in federal legal matters. In the United States, bankruptcy falls under the jurisdiction of the federal courts. The decision applies to married same-sex couples seeking federal benefits. It extends federal privileges to same sex couples even in states that do not recognize same sex marriage as long as they were legally married in another state.

No. In the United States, sexual orientation is generally irrelevant for single-parent adoptions. There are some states where same-sex married couples can jointly adopt. There are states where unmarried couples cannot jointly adopt and same-sex married couples are legally considered unmarried. There are some states where single gay parents can adopt, but same-sex married couples cannot. There are also many states where the adoption may be legal, but there are no legal protections against discrimination by the adoption agency against gays and lesbians. In general, however, if you are a single gay person and wish do adopt a child, you may do so. Joint adoption and "step-parent" adoption are more tricky.
