Huntersville Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer
Representing LGBTQ Clients in Family Law Matters
As a same-sex couple, you and your spouse may experience unique challenges during a divorce or separation. There is no need to designate marriage as “same-sex” or “opposite-sex” thanks to the June 2015 Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized marriage between same-sex couples across the nation, but there are still some states where divorce rights are not clearly outlined for same-sex couples.
As an attorney with extensive family law and divorce experience, I can offer my insight and counsel related to your same-sex divorce. I serve Huntersville and the surrounding communities across North Carolina and believe in supporting my clients’ rights, interests, and goals as though they were my own.
Issues to Address in Your Divorce
Any couple may have to deal with sensitive issues during a divorce. As your Huntersville same-sex divorce attorney, I can help you take a collaborative or contested approach to any divorce-related problem.
Together, we can address:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Distribution of property, accounts, and other assets
- Division of debts
- Sale/possession of the marital home
Child Custody & Same-Sex Divorce
Custody is one of the most complicated issues in any divorce, and for same-sex couples, this can present distinct obstacles. Circumstances like surrogacy, adoption, or when only one spouse is the birth parent, should be addressed on a case by case basis to ensure the full protection of each spouse’s rights. Even when the law isn’t clear, I can work as your Huntersville same-sex divorce attorney to assert your interests.
Working as Partners through Your Divorce
Every couple is different, and there is no such thing as a successful “cookie-cutter” approach to divorce. Because I have such extensive family law experience, I can take virtually any situation, accurately assess it, and provide information regarding the options available, as well as realistic expectations for potential outcomes. I believe in acting not just as an attorney but a partner in my clients’ same-sex divorce cases, so we are on the same page and working toward the same goals.
