Family law assistance for same-sex couples

Family law has always played a significant role in the lives of New Jersey families, with issues such as divorce and child custody being tackled in courts in an effort to provide fair legal separation. In recent years, an entirely new demographic has come to need family law: same-sex couples. New Jersey is proud to recognize the union of same-sex couples, but of course with marriage comes the possibility of divorce.

There are many issues that go into marriage and the creation of a family unit, ranging from prenuptial agreements to child support, and many of these issues are perhaps even more complex for same-sex couples. If a same-sex couple adopts a child, a custody and support order will have to be determined for that child just like with any other marriage, and same-sex couples should know that legal assistance can help them with their family issues.

Consulting with an attorney can help you make your case before the courts in issues of family law. Property division, alimony and all other post-marital issues are decided in the courtroom, and judges must make the best decisions they can with the information they are given. That is why enlisting the aid of an attorney can be so crucial. An attorney who has experience with family law can help you put your best foot forward to showcase the multifaceted relationship you had with your partner.

If you are going through a divorce with your same-sex partner, visit our divorce and family law webpage to learn more about how we can help you with all areas of family law. It is imperative that you take a strong legal stance during your divorce so that you treated fairly in the aftermath.
