How do you get divorced in a same-sex marriage?

As a person who is in a same-sex marriage in California, you will still have to go through proper legal proceedings if you wish to divorce. The Law Offices of Diane J.N. Morin are here to help guide you through what to expect if you want to split from your partner.

On the plus side, the country-wide legalization of same-sex marriage has solved some problems the LGBTQ community faced. Couples no longer had to worry about whether or not your marriage would be considered valid in any given state. Likewise, divorce was also more difficult if you moved to a state that did not acknowledge the marriage.

These days, it's possible to follow the established paths of divorce that straight couples have used for years. This means having to deal with things like custody of children, prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, child support payments, spousal support payments, division of your assets, and more.

Likewise, mediation is often a suggestion for any couple going through divorce. Though it might not be feasible for every situation, some couples do find that it helps them to reach a reasonable agreement with their partners without having to resort to courts telling them what to do.

If you would like to read more about your options during a divorce, or what to expect while you're going through the process, consider taking a look at our linked web page. We can provide you with the information you're seeking, and you can use it later when looking for an attorney to help you through the finer details.
