Gay Marriage and Divorce in New York

Divorce Lawyer in New York

Legal Assistance for Gay and Lesbian Pre-nuptial Agreements, Post-Nuptial Agreements, and Divorce

As of July 24, 2011, the State of New York became the sixth state in the country to allow marriage between same sex couples. Unfortunately not all marriages last forever, whether gay or straight, and with the right to marry, comes divorce. Until the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”) the dissolution of a same-sex marriage is more complex than heterosexual marriage, especially if there are children or assets involved. Although the steps to divorce are the same legally as a heterosexual marriage, there are important tax considerations in the dissolution of same sex marriages.
