Protecting You In Same-Sex Divorce Cases
Since the U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold same-sex marriage in 2015, many LGBTQ couples have gone on to happily wed and celebrate their live together. Marriage equality arrived with this landmark decision, and it has been well-earned. But married couples of all types know that a little hard work is necessary to make marriages succeed.
When marriage does not work, separation and divorce are a strong possibility. In same-sex marriages, divorce can be a bit more complicated. If you are pursuing divorce, you need a knowledgeable and understanding family law attorney. I am Cynthia M Pyfrom in Boynton Beach, Florida, and I have the legal skills and experience to help you protect yourself and your assets in same-sex divorce cases.
Addressing Many Divorce-Related Issues
As an experienced family law attorney, I know what it is like to experience divorce because I have been through one. I understand the sensitivity and difficulty involved in this legal area. In listening to my clients, I provide one-on-one attention along with invaluable insight that will allow you to carry on with your life.
A key issue in same-sex divorce cases is determining when the union actually began. Was it 20 years ago when the couple began cohabitating? Or was it in 2015 when the couple was legally married? This matter can have a dramatic effect on some of the following issues in same-sex divorce cases:
- Equitable property division
- Spousal support or alimony
- Child custody and visitation
- Guardianship of any children. In most same-sex relationships, just one person is considered to be the legal parent.
- Financial support of children
In reviewing your case, I will discuss your options and pursue results. I value my clients, while helping them carry on with their lives.
