New York Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer
Hudson Valley and NYC Divorce Lawyers know the special needs of same-sex couples in divorce
In June, 2015 – although long overdue — the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
Now that gay and lesbian couples have a legally recognized right to marry, it follows that same-sex couples also have all the equitable distribution rights in divorce and separation codified in New York’s Domestic Relations Law. These rights include:
- Child custody and child support
- Property, asset and debt division (“Equitable Distribution”)
- Maintenance (formerly called “alimony”)
SPECIAL NEEDS OF SAME-SEX COUPLES IN DIVORCE AND CUSTODY CASES
Same-sex couples often face additional challenges in divorce and custody because of the careful consideration necessary in dividing assets and debts that were incurred prior to the legal date of marriage. Determining child custody, visitation and support can also be difficult for the same reason.
The team at Jonna Spilbor Law not only has the experience necessary to handle the divorce challenges facing same-sex couples, but we handle it all with heart and compassion.
