The State of New York has passed a law legalized marriages for same-sex couples. This will allow all couples regardless of their sexual orientation to legally marry and enjoy all of the legal benefits of a married couple. This law also means that same-sex couples will be subject to the divorce laws of New York State, such as; child custody and support, spousal support, and the equitable distribution of marital assets.
While same-sex couples would be treated no different than heterosexual couples under New York State’s domestic relations laws, this does not mean that same sex divorces should be approached in the same manner. At the Law Offices of Lance H. Meyer, our legal team understands the nuances and intricacies that accompany a same-sex divorce and will be by our client’s side throughout every step of the process.
