Guiding You Through A Same-Sex Divorce

The law on same-sex domestic relationships has been like a moving target in recent years. Here in New York, however, marriage equality has been in place since 2011 — four years before the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationally.

But as important as this legalization is, it is only half the story. The other half is the many key issues that can arise when a same-sex couple seeks to get divorced.

We have office locations in Newburgh and Middletown to serve clients in the New York City area and the Hudson Valley. Call 845-234-4852 or 877-278-5062 to arrange a consultation about your unique case.

What Are The Issues You Are Facing?

Facing separation or divorce isn't easy for anyone, regardless of sexual orientation. Issues of property division, spousal support (alimony) and child custody/parenting time issues have to be worked — sometimes with considerable difficulty.

There are, however, particular issues that can particularly affect same-sex partners. For example, suppose the partner you are now getting divorced from brought a child into the marriage from a previous relationship or had a child using in vitro fertilization. If you didn't formally adopt the child, there may be issues now regarding your legal right to remain involved in the child's life.

This is only an example of the kind of issues that can arise in same-sex divorce in New York. Our lawyers know how to handle complex legal matters, making it easier for clients to move forward with their lives.
