Our team has the right experience to handle the unique nuances of same-sex divorce cases.
Deciding to divorce your partner is never easy from an emotional perspective, but same-sex couples who decide to divorce often face additional complications on the legal side of things as well. The reason for this is the gradual, patchwork nature in which marriage equality was enacted in the US and the rest of the world, with different states and countries legalizing same-sex marriage at different times. Although same-sex couples everywhere in the US now share the same rights to marry and divorce as do opposite-sex ones, there is often additional red tape left over from those earlier years. Because of this, you need a lawyer who is familiar with the specific hurdles that may be involved in a same-sex divorce in order to make the process go as smoothly as possible. Fortunately, our team at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter knows exactly how to navigate any obstacles that arise.
Of course, divorce–including same-sex divorce–often involves other, related issues. In most cases, couples don’t just need to legally dissolve their marriage, but also to address issues of spousal support, property division, and child support and custody. Because these issues are so important to everyone involved, you need a lawyer you can count on to provide the legal expertise, persuasive negotiation skills, and compassion you need to get through the process and achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family. Our team has these qualities in spades, and we are committed to giving you the superior representation you deserve.
