In 2015, the US Supreme Court said that marriage is not limited to a man and a woman. Family law for non-traditional families changed dramatically after that. Despite the recent changes to the law, we’ve been working with the LGBTQ+ community to meet their legal needs long before the law caught up.
Same sex couples with children obviously have to deal with custody, visitation, and support, when they separated just like any other divorcing couple with children. The important (and often tricky) part is finding a divorce lawyer that understands the unique aspects of LGBTQ+ family law matters.
We have always thought that divorcing LGBTQ+ couples have the same rights and go through the same procedures as any other couples, but finding the right lawyer can be challenging.
You want to work with a firm who has compassion for your situation and your family, and ideally, someone who has represented LGBTQ+ clients before. The team at Trusler Legal PLLC has been helping non-traditional families navigate family matters for years. Schedule an initial consultation
