Same-sex couples who were married in Florida, or married in another state and are now Florida residents may seek a divorce in Florida. The same dissolution of marriage laws and processes that apply to heterosexual couples now apply to same-sex couples. That means assets and liabilities accrued from the date of marriage are subject to equitable distribution, prenuptial/postnuptial agreements will be litigated, and parenting plans will need to be established. Even though same-sex couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples, they will also have the same complexities. Seek the counsel and expertise of a family lawyer in Wesley Chapel, FL from the firm of Glenn & Phanco, P.A. We have vast experience in this area of law and can guide you through the process with confidence and compassion.
Florida is a no-fault state, meaning that you don’t need to show grounds or fault. A spouse does not have to prove the other spouse did anything wrong in order to get divorced. While some of the legal requirements may seem straightforward, there are other extenuating circumstances that create challenges for same-sex couples.
A skilled divorce lawyer can help with classifying assets and debts, and will negotiate on your behalf for a fair divorce settlement and all that you are entitled to.
If children are involved, parenting plans and support issues can become extremely complex. As in all divorces, the court always considers a number of factors to establish the best interest of the child.
