Some Special Issues Apply In Same-Sex Divorce
Naturally enough, the legalization of same-sex marriage meant that same-sex divorce was not far behind. The dissolution of marriages among LGBT couples is not fundamentally different from divorces involving heterosexual couples. In both New York and New Jersey; a divorce requires the resolution of both financial and practical issues, including:
- Division of your property and debt
- Determination of child custody and parenting time (visitation)
- Initial determination of child support obligations
- Establishment of spousal support, if necessary, during and after the divorce
For same-sex couples, however, some issues may still require special attention. For example, many LGBT couples may have entered into cohabitation agreements or civil unions before marriage was legalized. These could be used as evidence of their intentions about sharing their property.
Another example is legal parentage: In many same-sex couples, at least one parent is nonbiological. If that parent has not established a legal relationship with the child through adoption or a parentage order, there may be repercussions on child custody and support decisions. These effects are often permanent, meaning that individuals preparing for a same-sex divorce need to invest the time to ensure that they are hiring the right attorney for the job.
