New York Same Sex Divorce Lawyer
Child Custody and Visitation | Support | Property Settlements
Same-sex marriage has been legal in the state of New York since 2011, pursuant to the provisions of the Marriage Equality Act. Of course, with marriage comes the possibility of divorce. Under New York law, parties to a same-sex marriage in the state have the same rights to dissolve the marriage through a divorce proceeding, with the same potential disputes involving custody and visitation, child support or alimony, and the division of marital debts and assets. If your marriage is over, regardless of the circumstances, you want an experienced and proven lawyer to protect your rights. You want the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo.
The attorneys with the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo bring more than 35 years of practice experience to men and women across the New York City metropolitan area. We have extensive courtroom experience and know how to effectively protect your rights before a judge and jury. We understand as well that there are times when a long and protracted trial is not in your best interest. We have the skill and experience to negotiate an outcome that meets all your needs.
Our Representation in Same-Sex Divorce Matters
We work with men or women at any stage of a divorce proceeding, whether just deciding to file for divorce or already in receipt of a divorce complaint. We handle all matters related to, or arising out of, a divorce, including the following:
- Child custody and visitation — We’ll help you put in place custody and visitation agreements that are in the best interests of your minor children while also protecting your rights as a parent.
- Child support — We’ll review any proposed order for child support to ensure compliance with state guidelines and confirm that all appropriate income is factored into the equation.
- Alimony or spousal support — We’ll help you determine whether a grant of alimony is warranted and, if so, how much should be paid for how long.
- The division of marital property — We will help you equitably divide the debts and assets of your marriage, including real and personal property; bank accounts, investments and insurance products; retirement assets; and business interests.
We also can prepare and implement a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, so that your assets are protected in the event of divorce or separation.
