Same-Sex Divorces and Problems They Face

The legalization of LGBT marriages in Florida is still a relatively new concept and area of the law. Legal professionals and lawmakers are still waiting to see if problematic complexities arise in family law disputes involving same-sex couples, especially divorce. The idea is that the elimination of male- and female-centered “roles” in marriage could have some effect on legislation.

At this time, however, LGBT divorces should be treated just like any other divorce. Preexisting proceedings can be readily applied to these newer forms of marriage dissolution without much difficulty, as long as the case is handled by an experienced divorce lawyer.

When you are divorcing your LGBT spouse, we will want to discuss important matters that could affect your future wellbeing, such as:

Unique Circumstances Regarding Children

There are a few aspects of LGBT divorces and married life that present somewhat complicated areas of the law, and require creative and thorough legal strategies to overcome: child custody and time sharing, sometimes called visitation. For most same-sex married couples, any children that they share together will be from a legal adoption, not birth. When a court cannot readily define a biological connection between the child and either parent, other means will have to be utilized to determine who should get primary custody, and how often the other parent will be allowed to visit. Typically, this boils down to who can provide the best, most comfortable life for the child.

Courts may consider the following when determining child custody and visitation rights in your LGBT divorce:

  • Each spouse’s financial stability
  • Each spouse’s criminal and medical history
  • Child’s health and age
  • Child’s apparent attachment to each parent
