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.
