Special Considerations for Same-Sex Couples

Generally speaking, divorce is not much different for same-sex couples than for opposite-sex couples.

Same-sex couples will have to address all the standard topics involved in any divorce, including:

Of course, there are a few aspects of these matters that can be complicated by the unique situations that many LGBTQ families face.

Some situations that can be more complex for same-sex couples include:

  • Determining marital and separate property: Before they had the right to marry, many same-sex couples in Florida cohabitated or formed a civil union. These situations can make it difficult to define when the marriage began for the purpose of distinguishing community property from separate property. Our Pinellas County same-sex divorce attorneys can help you fight to protect your property and ensure that assets and debts are divided fairly.
  • Establishing child custody: Between same-sex couples, it is not uncommon for only one partner to be the legal parent of any children the couple is raising. This means that even though both partners may have contributed to raising the child, only one person has actual legal rights to the child. We can carefully assess your case and ensure that a personalized solution is established for your unique situation.
