The Compassionate Advocacy You Need When Facing LGBTQ Divorce Issues
While same-sex marriages are legal throughout Michigan and the rest of the country, LGBTQ individuals who are now seeking a divorce may face numerous challenges. In some cases, traditional divorce laws are not straightforward enough to be applied to same-sex divorces. If you are seeking a divorce and do not know where to turn, we can help.
At Gormley and Johnson Law Offices, PLC, our attorneys have over 45 years of combined experience that they use when helping LGBTQ individuals move forward with their lives. We fully understand the family court processes that govern how same-sex and traditional divorces are handled. From our main office in Fowlerville, Michigan, we provide representation to clients throughout Livingston County and the surrounding areas, including Howell and Brighton through our satellite office.
Resolving All Issues That Stem From Divorce
Much like traditional divorces, many issues need to be addressed in conjunction with an LGBTQ divorce. These issues, including those listed below, can be more complex than they are in a traditional marriage:
- Child custody and parenting time
- Child support
- Spousal support (spousal maintenance, also known as alimony)
- Property division and equitable division of marital assets
- Debt division
Our firm can confidently handle any additional matters that arise in conjunction with a same-sex couple in the area of family law. Get in touch with us to discuss your situation, even if your specific type of issue is not listed here.
An Area Of Ever-Changing Laws
Though same-sex marriages are being performed throughout the country since the United States Supreme Court made them legal in 2015, the laws that govern these types of marriages and issues are still changing and gelling. Each state handles same-sex marriage, and subsequent divorce, differently. This is why it is essential to have an attorney on your side who stays current on all related cases and laws.
Our firm prides itself on its knowledge of same-sex marriage and divorce laws, working tirelessly to ensure we have the most up-to-date information to pass along to our clients. If the laws change, we will review your case and help you understand how the changes may affect your situation.
