LGBTQ Divorce


Understanding and Compassion In LGBTQ Divorce

No divorce is ever simple, but when couples in the LGBTQ community decide they’d like to divorce it can seem even more complicated. Finding a team that understands the issues you’re facing and knows how to navigate a path forward is the first step to a successful divorce.

When you meet with your Collaborative Divorce Team they will help you determine things like:

  • the date of separation - If you had a commitment ceremony prior to the legalization of same-sex marriage in PA, your team will help to establish which date to use when determining joint assets

  • child custody - If one party adopted a child during the marriage, it can be difficult to determine a custody agreement. Your Collaborative Team can help make custody arrangements that keep your child’s best interest at the forefront.

  • retirement and investment accounts - Splitting assets you jointly put aside for retirement can be stressful. The Financial Neutral will help you determine a fair division of assets for both parties.
