How My Firm Can Help
When filing for divorce or ending a domestic partnership, an LGBT couple will need to sort out all of the same issues as a heterosexual couple. From property division to spousal support, many of the same issues will need to be handled – either at the couple’s discretion or with the help of a family law judge.
My firm can help you address the following concerns:
Like heterosexual couples, LGBT couples can initiate a contested or uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both parties would need to cooperate, coming to a mutual agreement about all of the aforementioned issues and more. In a contested divorce, these decisions would be left to the court. My firm represents LGBT couples in all types of divorce.
Protecting The Rights Of Gay And Lesbian Parents
In the state of California, same-sex couples can register their domestic partnership or get married, acquiring the same legal protections within the state that were formerly reserved for heterosexual couples. California courts recognize that both of a child’s parents can be women or both can be men. If gay or lesbian partners have cooperated in conceiving and raising a child, then both have the rights and responsibilities of parents.
If you need help resolving a same-sex issue involving your children, at Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, I am here for you. My firm assists same-sex couples in protecting their relationships with their children. Children of a domestic partnership have full rights to insurance coverage and inheritance in California. I will help you draft a will designating a guardian in the event of your death and an estate plan to see your property is preserved for your children.
If you are legally separated or facing dissolution of your partnership, I can help you work out a parenting plan and a fair child support order that will protect your relationship with your child. Make sure your children have the protection they need.
