The Respectful, Experienced Attorneys You Deserve In Same-Sex Divorce And Custody
At Aldridge & Birdwhistell, we aim to provide high-quality and supportive legal representation to all Elizabethtown-area families. As in all marital unions, same-sex marriages may unfortunately end in divorce. When you are going through one of the most challenging times in your life, you deserve to work with attorneys who will provide respectful, supportive guidance that you can trust.
As marriages for gay couples are the same as any other marriage in the eyes of the law, so are same-sex divorce proceedings. We can help you understand your options when it comes to the end of your marriage, including:
- Maintenance orders/spousal support: Commonly referred to as “alimony,” we can help determine an appropriate and reasonable maintenance order.
- Division of assets and marital property: In Kentucky, marital property is divided nearly equally. We can help ensure that all assets are accounted for and assessed properly.
What Happens When Children Are Involved?
In all divorces involving minor children, the situation becomes more complicated and often more contentious. In same-sex families with children, things can get even more complex. If one spouse is the biological parent while the other is not, or if the children were adopted, child custody and support issues in same-sex marriages can become an involved and trying ordeal. We will be there to walk you through the process and help you understand your options.
