Same Sex Divorce
After decades of protracted court battles, infringed rights, and widespread discrimination, gay and lesbian Americans have finally received the same rights afforded to heterosexual individuals; namely, the right to get married. As with any other couple, however, irreconcilable differences in a same-sex marriage may lead to a divorce.
At the Law Offices of David E Oles, LLC, our Alpharetta divorce attorney has more than two decades of experience guiding his clients through this complex and emotional process. When you retain our firm, you can trust that you are choosing an attorney who is truly committed to your best interests.
What Are Acceptable Grounds for a Same Sex Divorce?
There is zero legal distinction between a same sex divorce and a heterosexual divorce, so the process will be the same. In Georgia, there are two types of divorce cases – contested, and uncontested. The type of divorce will be dependent on your ability to work with your spouse and compromise.
- Uncontested divorce is only possible if you and your spouse can agree on things like property division, and child custody schedules if you have kids.
- Contested divorce is typically a much longer process, as these issues must be worked out through the court rather than with your spouse. These divorces can also be much more expensive.
If you are considering divorce, it’s important to contact an Alpharetta divorce attorney early in the process to protect your rights and interests. You’ll find the compassionate, knowledgeable representation you need at the Law Offices of David E Oles, LLC. Our firm is truly dedicated to helping our clients get the best possible results in their divorce, and can do the same for you when you retain our firm.
