La Mesa Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer
Representing LGBT Couples in Lemon Grove, El Cajon & La Mesa
Divorce can be a stressful and emotionally taxing process. As a La Mesa same-sex divorce attorney, I am here to guide you through the entire process.
When it comes to divorce for same-sex couples, it is important to understand California's laws. For instance, even if a partnership is not defined legally as a marriage, the state can still grant a divorce or dissolution. This is important when considering the division of assets and debts.
I offer legal representation to same-sex couples in the following areas:
- Division of assets
- Child custody and visitation rights
- Mediation and arbitration
- Separation agreements
- Spousal support
- Child support
Call (619) 304-8499 for experienced counsel and compassionate support through your same-sex divorce. I can provide the quality representation you need.
Divorce for Non-Resident Same-Sex Partners
California requires opposite-sex partners to be residents to file for divorce. This requirement does not apply to same-sex partnerships. Therefore, if you entered into a domestic partnership while living outside of California and are seeking a divorce, you are able to do so even if you are current residents of a state that does not recognize divorce for same-sex partnerships.
You are required to file for divorce in the county where you were married, however. This may make it difficult to complete the process if one, or both of you, are living outside of the state, thus making it wise to seek the services of an experienced La Mesa same-sex divorce lawyer who can help you throughout every step.
Seeking Mediation May Be Your Best Option
Mediation allows for an amicable resolution where both parties can feel satisfied in the outcome. I provide this service for individuals who feel as if an out-of-court resolution is the best option.
Furthermore, if one, or both of you, are living outside of the state, it is highly recommended that you seek mediation services to avoid costly travel bills, court fees, and the time associated with a contested divorce in court.
