Same-sex divorce option

Couples in a heterosexual marriage have a multitude of laws to guide them through divorce; however, there is little information on the rights involved with same-sex divorce or breakups.  The general consensus is that a partnership that cannot become a marriage does not have the rights of a marriage.

Many same-sex couples purchase the same items as a heterosexual couple, including a home, cars, bank accounts; they even have children together.  Good advice would be to draw up and sign a pre-nuptial-type agreement outlining each other’s rights in case of a breakup.

If this is not the case, hiring an experienced divorce attorney might just be the right answer because each would be legally represented.
