Same-Sex Divorce | Civil Union Dissolutions
Same-sex couples may find that their divorce or civil union dissolution is more complicated than for opposite sex couples simply because of the lack of uniformity surrounding the laws of same-sex marriage. Issues that are traditionally simple to determine for opposite sex couples, such as determining the length of the marriage or the number of children, can be more complex for same-sex couples who have had to face inconsistent and constantly changing laws. Thus, obtaining an equitable divorce, with a fair division of property and a thoughtful approach to parental rights and responsibilities, becomes more difficult in the context of same-sex relationships. Catherine Tucker can assist you through the process by providing thoughtful guidance tailored to your unique situation.
