Support for ending your same-sex divorce

Since the United States Supreme Court's 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, same-sex couples in the United States have been granted the right to have their marriages recognized in every state in the nation. Prior to the Obergefell decision, a same-sex Washington couple may find that their union was not considered valid if they traveled to a state where same-sex marriages were not recognized.

The Obergefell decision was also paramount in allowing same-sex couples to pursue divorces in various jurisdictions. Before the decision a couple may have to establish residency in a location that recognized same-sex marriages just to get into the courts to end their legal relationship. If they were married and then moved to a location where same-sex marriage was not recognized, they may not have been allowed to get a divorce since their marriage was not considered valid.

Same-sex divorce rights are now nationally recognized and men and women who wish to engage with this legal process deserve divorce attorneys who recognize the unique issues that may present themselves when same-sex couples end their marriages. The Hodgson Law Office, located in Spokane, welcomes clients who are in same-sex marriages and who wish to learn more about what they must do to divorce.

From property settlement concerns to figuring out how to share custody of their kids, same-sex couples have to deal with many of the same issues as heterosexual divorcing couples. However, the relatively new status of divorce rights for men and women in same-sex relationships is something that not all attorneys may have familiarity pursuing in court. The Hodgson Law Office invites the readers of its blog to visit the firm online to learn more about its diverse divorce offerings.
