Same-Sex Divorce

Staten Island Same-Sex Family Law Divorce Attorney

Same-sex divorce may be the only option after your relationship has developed irreconcilable differences.

I am Benjamin Haber, a renowned family lawyer, and I’m willing to help you get all the necessary legal papers required to end your same-sex marriage, which is not working.

I can help you handle all the divorce agreements. Starting from prenuptial to postnuptial agreements, I can handle them. I handle all the technical details and later explain to you what you will be supposed to do. You need to sort things out so that each one of you can walk out of the marriage when fully satisfied. The roles each one of you will play after a gay marriage divorce will be well captured in the separation agreement. You will never get stranded if you decide to work with me in your divorce settlements. Some of the areas I tackle in the same-sex divorce include the following processes.

Property Distribution Issues

During same sex divorces, the property you co-owned should be distributed fairly. In my drafting of the divorce papers, I always take into consideration different factors so that each of you will walk out of the marriage satisfied with the amount he or she will receive upon divorce. To arrive at the best conclusion as far as property division is concerned, as your divorce attorney, I always take into consideration the views of the parties involved so that you are left with the best distribution of property.

Addressing Assets within the Prenuptial

Different same-sex divorce cases have their own levels of complexity. Some cases are very complex, and they need careful drafting of the prenuptial papers, which will capture all the assets involved in the marriage. I will not let you down upon informing me about the way you would like the assets to be distrusted. Making my clients achieve the highest level of satisfaction is my main goal in tackling the cases. Individuals in a same-sex relationship should understand that their relationship is not different from the heterosexual relationships when it comes to divorce.

I Work Towards Making You Leave the Marriage While Fully Satisfied

There are issues you may have covered in your prenuptial agreement. If you have covered in detail what should happen during divorce, then I will go into details and ensure each process you agreed on is well captured in your divorce process. You should be in a marriage which you enjoy. If things are not working and the best option is to quit, I will help you have the most convenient process of ending your times.

Child Custody and Visitation Rights

A homosexual couple with kids faces the same challenges as an opposite sex couple when it comes to divorce. The custody of the children is one of the most important things which should be addressed in a divorce. Each parent should have time with the kids so that they can grow up in a healthy manner. As your divorce law attorney, I will help you get the child visitation rights you want so that you can have time with your kids.

I will also help in drawing a child support agreement which is very important in ensuring the children are well taken care of after divorce. The agreement should be able to take care of all the kids’ financial needs until they become adults. I have been handling such cases for a long time, and I have the required experience to help you get what you want.

Spousal Support

Divorcing same sex couples are also entitled to the same level of support as other divorcing couples. Spouses in a same-sex marriage should not be taken for granted when it comes to the issue of support. As a divorce attorney, I make sure that you get what you are legally supposed to get from the other party, whether you were married for one year or many years.

Alimony Payment Arrangements

The court may order you to make some alimony payments to your spouse after a divorce. These payments are normally made on a temporary or permanent basis, depending on the ruling of the court. The payment is aimed at making sure that your spouse lives a comfortable life even after the divorce. I help in handling all the alimony payment details while drafting the divorce papers so that you are not taken for a ride during the payments.

Retirement Account Division

Divorced partners in the same sex marriage are also entitled to the same level of support as other divorcing couples. In some cases, the couple has a retirement account which needs to be distributed fairly among them. I help handle all the technical details of dividing such an account so that you each walk away with what is rightfully yours.
