Rancho Cucamonga Same-Sex Divorce Attorney

Are You Looking For Legal Assistance In Your Divorce Case?

California has had a complicated history with same-sex divorce, first passing a law to allow it on June 12, 2008, making it the second state in the country to allow same-sex marriage, before banning it again with Proposition 8 on November 5 of the same year. It took until June 27, 2013 for the United States Supreme Court to rule Proposition 8 unconstitutional. However, with the legalization of marriage comes the legalization of divorce, and just like with any other couple, hiring an experienced divorce attorney will help you work your way through the potentially complicated process.

Issues To Look Out For In Your Divorce

Just like in any divorce, the issues and complications that come up will depend on the situations of the couple filing for divorce. Different couple’s divorces rarely, if ever, play out in the same fashion, but some common situations that are more likely to play out include:

  • Child Custody: Courts look at a several factors when deciding who will end up with primary custody of the children, including each parent’s ability to provide and support their children’s developmental needs, the children’s preference, the moral and mental fitness of each parent, etc.
  • Child Support: In most cases, the spouse who is awarded primary custody will also receive some level of child support from their ex-spouse. However, the amount awarded will vary based on several factors, including the cost of care for their children, payments for school, extracurricular activities, etc.
  • Parenting Time and Visitation Rights: In the vast majority of cases, courts will ensure that both parents can keep up some level of contact with their children once the divorce process is finalized. Because these rights are only taken away in the most extreme cases, the fight between parents will almost always revolve around the amount of time the parent without primary custody has to spend with their children.
  • Spousal Support: Determining whether or not a spouse will receive spousal support payments after the divorce is finalized is often the most contentious part of the divorce process. The courts will determine the payments based on several factors, including the standard of living each spouse enjoyed during the marriage, the length of the marriage, the individual finances and assets of each spouse, etc.
  • Property Division: Just like determining spousal support payments, this process tends to be incredibly contentious. Some factors the court will take into account include contributions each spouse made to the other’s education or career, the length of the marriage, the total financial contributions each spouse made to the relationship, etc.
