As your same-sex divorce lawyer in Denver, we will handle everything.

Our first course of action, in all divorce cases, is to meet with you.  To best serve you, we must gain an understanding of your personal situation.  While some facts are black-and-white, others definitely fall into the gray area.

As experienced divorce attorneys and active members of the community, we also have access to a broad range of outside professionals on whom we can rely for additional advice and guidance, should your case require it.

Same-Sex Divorce Issues

What You May Expect to Encounter

Divorce is a puzzle whose pieces may include finances, parenting time, child support and alimony. This picture is not nearly as simple as it appears. In fact, each aspect on its own is multifaceted, and reaching an agreement can be difficult.

When same-sex couples divorce, several of these concerns are further complicated.  These couples and their attorneys must take into account the length of time of the relationship.  Same-sex marriage became legal in Colorado in 2014, but many long-term relationships began prior to that.  Determining relationship timing is critical in the division of assets.

LGBTQ+ couples who have minor children have additional considerations with regard to child custody and support based on how the family was conceived (via adoption, surrogacy or IVF).

Working with a Denver same-sex divorce lawyer who is experienced in managing these types of decisions is incredibly helpful.
