We’re Experienced Working With Same-Sex Couples
With same-sex marriage being legal since 2015, LGBTQ couples face the same issues as any couple looking to divorce. A same-sex divorce was more difficult prior to the legalization of marriage nationwide, but now all couples have the same protections and can take the same steps if it is time to dissolve their marriage.
At the Law Offices of Diane J.N. Morin, Inc., we understand how difficult divorce is on any couple. We work with same-sex couples in Palo Alto and surrounding California areas to finalize all aspects of their divorce. LGBTQ family law issues we handle include:
- Child custody and child support
- Asset and property division
- Prenuptial/marital agreements
- Parental rights and visitation
If you and your partner are thinking about divorce, an experienced attorney can be your best ally. We have more than 30 years of legal experience and are ready to go to work for you.
Guiding You Through Mediation
We always recommend couples explore mediation or collaborative divorce before entering litigation. These methods are less contentious and often allow both parties to end up with satisfactory results.
A lesbian or gay divorce is no different from any other, and exploring alternative dispute resolutions is the best option for many of our clients. The right lawyer makes all the difference in complicated situations, and we have experience helping couples negotiate agreements that leave everyone satisfied and avoid the stress of the courtroom.
