When the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage throughout the country in 2015, it brought up a relatively new concept in Arizona – same-sex divorce. Same-sex couples in Arizona may end up requiring legal assistance in a divorce process. At Wilson-Goodman Law Group, PLLC, we are ready to help. Our Chandler same-sex divorce attorneys will work to ensure your rights are upheld as you go through this difficult time.
When you are going through a divorce, you need an attorney by your side who you can trust both professionally and personally. At Wilson-Goodman Law Group, PLLC, we have more than two decades of experience in this area.
A divorce can become very complicated, whether it involves opposite-sex couples or same-sex couples. However, a same-sex divorce case may present unique challenges that require an attorney to sort through. A same-sex divorce attorney will work to resolve all issues related to a divorce.
An attorney will also understand the issues involved in a same-sex marriage that are not present in an opposite-sex marriage, including whether there was a domestic partnership before the marriage, marriage from another state, and more.
Same-sex marriages often involve all of the issues you would typically think of in a divorce settlement. This can include:
Even if you were married in another state, the residency requirement applies the same for same-sex and opposite-sex couples. Both parties seeking to dissolve a marriage in Arizona must have been residents in the state for a minimum of 90 days.
One complication that could arise with same-sex divorces is child custody and visitation because one or both parties involved may not be the biological parent of the child. Our firm is ready to help whether you worked through assisted reproductive technology measures or adoption.
We will analyze all aspects of your same-sex marriage, including when the marriage began, whether there was a domestic partnership beforehand, and where the marriage took place.
