Helping You Navigate The Murky Waters Of Same-Sex Family Law
As of right now, the only clear guidelines around same-sex partnerships are that you can legally marry and legally divorce. Beyond that, much is unknown. It is not even clear at this point how alimony and property distribution will be handled. Should it be handled based on the length of the marriage, or the length of the relationship since many people created lives together without the protections of marriage?
