Same-Sex Divorce

In 2015, Florida lifted its ban on same-sex marriage, and in doing so, enabled same-sex couples to pursue divorce as well. Prior to this decision, same-sex couples in Florida who married in another state were unable to divorce. Therefore, following a separation, they were unable to sort out crucial details such as child support, timesharing, and the division of assets and liabilities.

As same-sex divorce remains in its infancy in Florida, it has yet to be seen what challenges same-sex divorce will bring. Undoubtedly, some of the unique challenges that will appear in same-sex family law cases include instances where only one person is the legal parent, adoption by same-sex couples, and proving the length of the marriage, which affects the types of alimony that may be awarded.

Richard A. Schurr, P.A. is a firm that handles same-sex family law cases, including same-sex divorce and pre-nuptial agreements. Due to the limited authority that Florida judges have to rely on, it is important to have an experienced attorney to assist with your divorce. To learn more about how our firm can assist you, contact us today at (305) 204-4924.
