Attorney Providing Answers To Your Same-Sex Divorce Questions
In 2004, the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples had the same rights to marry as opposite sex couples. Since that ruling, many couples have exercised their right to marry. Legalized same-sex marriage has resulted in a new legal process — same-sex divorce.
At Natoli & Associates in Taunton, Massachusetts, we have the experience, knowledge and sensitivity to help gay and lesbian individuals through the divorce process and move on to the next stage of their lives.
Unique Issues That Arise In Same-Sex Divorce
A divorce involving same-sex partners presents many of the same issues as a traditional marriage, including spousal support, child custody and the division of assets. But some issues are unique to same-sex marriage. For example, many same-sex couples considered themselves married long before the state determined it was legal. If both parties don’t agree on the length of the marriage, it can present problems in determining, among other things, property division and spousal support.
The unique issues involved in same-sex divorce make it important to hire a Taunton same-sex divorce lawyer as early in the process as possible.
We work to reach divorce settlements outside of court as often as possible. If necessary, however, we will be a strong advocate for your rights in court.
