Resolving All Issues That Arise In A Same-Sex Divorce
Similar to opposite-sex marriage, same-sex/LGBTQ couples will encounter a variety of issues when divorcing. Depending on your unique situation, these areas can include:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Determination of parentage
- Spousal support
- Property division
- Debt division and more
At our firm, we strive to ensure that conflict is minimized and that roadblocks are avoided. If the other side is unwilling to be reasonable, however, we are fully prepared to take your case to court in order to protect your rights.
Saving You Time And Money
Many couples come to us seeking a simple divorce and nothing more. If you are looking for a clean break and both sides can agree to most issues, then a collaborative divorce could be possible. During a collaborative divorce, you are allowed to craft your own divorce decree without having to involve the courts or a judge at all. This process allows you to be creative and gives you flexibility in deciding not only your future, but the future of any children you may have, instead of leaving things to a judge who has never met you and does not understand your needs.
