What Happens During a Same-Sex Divorce?
Legally speaking, a same-sex divorce is no different from any other dissolution of marriage, with LGBTQ couples facing many of the exact same issues as those in a heterosexual marriage. Florida is a “no-fault” state, meaning that spouses do not need to allege that the other spouse engaged in some sort of misconduct in order to achieve a divorce. Instead, couples may pursue a divorce by citing “irreconcilable differences,” or if applicable, the mental incapacity of one party.
Gay, lesbian, and transgender couples must decide the following issues:
- Asset and debt distribution
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
Fortunately, not all divorces have to escalate out of control into major legal battles. Through mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods, same-sex couples can pursue collaborative solutions to these issues without ever setting foot in a courtroom, allowing them to maintain their privacy and control over the terms of their separation. While our team is committed to pursuing a peaceful solution for your case, we understand that litigation is sometimes necessary to yield the results our clients desire. Regardless of the complexities you face, our team is prepared to do whatever is necessary to guard your and your family’s best interests during this time.
