Getting you through your divorce, no matter the challenges.
When the United States Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 2015, it not only legalized same-sex marriage, but also paved the way for same-sex divorce. Prior to that landmark decision, same-sex couples that had been legally married but then moved to states where same-sex marriage was not yet legal could have a difficult time getting divorced.
Today, same-sex divorces for people who were married after marriage equality became law will proceed in the same way as any other divorce. However, for some couples who have been together for a longer period of time there may be some additional complications.
At Sunset Family Law, we are here to be your friendly and reliable advocates throughout your divorce to help you get through the process smoothly and to allow you to focus on giving yourself a fresh start.
Generally, the issues that arise during LGBTQ divorces are the same as those that must be dealt with during other divorces. However, there are a few small complications that may arise.
Our attorneys at Sunset Family Law care deeply about reducing your stress as you go through the divorce process and allowing you to feel confident that you will come away with the best possible result for you.
