Helping Same-Sex Couples Through Their Divorce
Since gay marriage became legal in 2013, thousands of couples across the country have made their union legal. Unfortunately, along with legal marriage also comes the legal divorce process. Divorces in a same-sex marriage often face may of the same concerns as a heterosexual marriage, namely:
- The division of assets
- Assignment of alimony
- Potential determination of child custody and support
These are difficult decisions and it’s important to work with a legal advocate who can speak candidly to you about your situation.
