Same-Sex Divorce

Same-Sex Divorce

Divorce is rarely easy, but it can be especially emotionally taxing if you are worried about being treated differently because of the nature of the relationship you are ending. Since 2004, same-sex couples have had the right to get married in Massachusetts — and thus, the right to get divorced. Still, LGBT couples who get divorced often face particularly complex legal issues, especially if there are children involved.

At Reade Law Firm, PC, we help same-sex couples through all aspects of the divorce process, including negotiating child custody, child support, division of property, and alimony. We will ensure your rights are protected throughout the process and that the outcome is fair to you and your family.

Protecting LGBT Parents During Divorce

Even though same-sex marriage is legal across the nation, states are widely varied in the rights they grant same-sex couples in divorce. Generally, Massachusetts laws treats same-sex couples the same as heterosexual couples when it comes to custody determinations. If there are any questions or challenges to your legal parentage during a same-sex divorce, we will ensure your rights and your relationship with your children are protected.
