Orlando & Tampa Same-Sex Divorce Attorneys
As of January 6, 2015, the state of Florida began recognizing same-sex marriage. Divorce provides a specific structure for dividing assets and granting alimony, custody and visitation. Divorce often involves extensive negotiations and collaboration to ensure that the split is fair. It is important that you have skilled representation working on your behalf to ensure that your interests are protected and you are positioned for the most secure financial future possible following the division.

There are many financial considerations to be made during the dissolution of a same-sex marriage or domestic partnership. If the couple has purchased a home together, decisions must be made regarding the division of that property. If the couple has considerable debt, it may be necessary to consider a bankruptcy together and how the timing of that would affect the divorce.
If there are children involved, extra steps must be taken to decide on a fair custody and visitation plan. This is fairly standardized if an adoption was conducted. If no formal adoption ever occurred, but the non-parent wishes to remain involved in the child’s life, there are solutions that can be explored to ensure this.
