Gay Divorce and Straight Divorce

As we wrote a few weeks back, as more and more people enter same-sex relationships we will be seeing more and more gay divorce. This unfortunately is not a matter of opinion, but rather a matter of California marriage statistics. When it comes to equal rights it is of course a small price to pay for the rights of everyone to get married.

If you are in a same-sex relationship and considering marriage it is your best interest to think ahead to what may happen if the relationship ends. This can be very tough to do, but will be easier now before you make a commitment which may include buying a house together, adopting children together, and co-mingling your funds. No one wants to think about their marriage ending, but dealing with it now could save you a lot of time, money, and stress down the road.

Thinking Ahead to Same-Sex Divorce i.e. Gay Divorce

Our office has been helping people handle their divorces for over a decade. Contact Us if you are seeking a divorce, or looking to get married and simply want to think ahead. Attorney Beatrice K. Fung can walk you through whatever it is you want to discuss when it comes to these Family Law matters.

Even if you have been in a relationship with your partner for years, there is a very big difference between a relationship, and a “marriage” in the eyes of the law. In the State of California, marriage is a binding legal agreement between two parties. So before you sign this important legal contract make sure you know what you are getting into in case things don’t go as planned. We of course hope the best for all couples, though that doesn’t always work out as we would hope.

Things to Consider for Gay Divorce

When it comes to divorce some of the key factors which can get in dispute are:

  • Child Custody

  • Separation of Property

  • Separation of Money

  • Separation of any valuables

  • Separation of any debt

Before getting married consider speaking with an attorney who specializes in Family Law in the state where you live. If you live in Southern California Call Us to set up an appointment to discuss your needs. You can discuss each of the items above which apply to you, and see how you can best prepare for your marriage and what may come after.

And know a lot of web-sites offer advice on how to behave before, during, a divorce when it comes to your bank accounts, credit-cards, credit-card debt, property, child care, child day-care, etc. Be careful of making any major decisions before consulting and hiring a Family Law attorney. Your actions could have ramifications during a divorce proceeding.
