Do Same-Sex Divorces Have Different Requirements?

Just as same-sex couples have the same rights to get married as other couples, they also have the same rights to end their marriage. Whether you are considering divorce or are in the middle of the required separation time, you need assertive, supportive attorneys on your side.

At The Law Office of Tamela T. Wallace P.A., we respect all of our clients, and we believe the people of Charlotte deserve high-quality representation no matter what their financial circumstances. We'll work hard on your behalf to ensure that you receive an outcome that is in your best interests.

We'll Help You Understand Same-Sex Divorce Laws

The laws regarding same-sex divorce are the same as for other divorces. You'll need to consider issues such as:

  • Spousal support: We'll help determine if a spouse should receive support, and if so, assess an appropriate amount and duration.
  • Division of assets: We'll help to make sure that your best interests are protected since equitable distribution is not the same as equal distribution.

If the divorce involves minor children, circumstances might become more complicated. Depending on whether the children are the biological offspring of one spouse or they were adopted, child custody and support may more complex.

In any same-sex divorce where children are part of the family, it's even more important to have assertive yet compassionate legal representation. We'll provide you with the support you need while also ensuring that your best interests and those of your children always remain our focal point.
