Unique Challenges Faced by LGBTQ+ Couples During Divorce

To finalize the dissolution of a marriage, same-sex couples typically have the same options as heterosexual spouses, such as utilizing a summary, uncontested, or contested dissolution of marriage.

However, same-sex individuals often face a number of challenges when filing for divorce. Some common issues same-sex couples frequently encounter includes:

  • Determining how to divide property equitably. Many same-sex couples have considered themselves married longer than gay marriage has been legal, which can lead to disputes over what constitutes separate or community property.
  • Ascertaining spousal support. Like property division, same-sex couples may disagree on what factors should play into a spousal support dispute.
  • Establishing child custody and support. Child custody and support battles can get murky, particularly when only one party is the biological party of a child.

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we're committed to helping same-sex Californians easily navigate the divorce process using tools such as mediation.
