Morgan Divorce Law Firm Orlando LGBT Divorce Lawyer Services

When you got married, were you thinking about divorce? Of course you weren’t.

But you’re here considering an Orlando LGBT divorce lawyer, and you’re reading this, so you or someone you know is facing something for which no one is prepared: the end of a marriage.

When “til ‘Death do us part” no longer applies, and one or both of you are ready to call it quits, it can be hard to know where to begin.

You’re in the Right Place!

It’s even harder if you’re a member of the LGBT community, and the laws don’t take your needs into account.

Shouldn’t LGBT marriage equality mean that there is divorce equality, too?

Gay and lesbian spouses face unique challenges when seeking a divorce in Florida, and can easily fall victim to predatory lawyers or legal loopholes that can exploit the novelty of marriage equality.

Our team at Morgan Divorce Law Firm has been on the forefront of LGBT inclusivity and advocacy for years.

  • LGBT Contested Divorce

  • LGBT Uncontested Divorce

  • LGBT Marriage Mediation

  • LGBT Divorce Counseling

  • LGBT Cooperative Divorce

  • LGBT Collaborative Divorce

Even if your divorce is amicable and mutual, divorce laws were written for heterosexual couples and the legislation is still catching up. That isn’t right, or fair, or even intentional on the part of the state, so you have to navigate a more complex process than straight spouses.

Why You Need an LGBT Divorce Attorney in Orlando

New laws mean new challenges.

 

Florida just recently enacted LGBT marriage equality. Same-sex marriage became the law of the United States in United States v. Windsor in 2015, when the Supreme Court finally upheld what most of us already knew: Loves Wins.

 

Don’t worry, this isn’t about to become a history lesson. But this is important.

 

Florida was one of 13 states that, before 2015, were still holding to heteronormative legislation. Discriminatory laws stood, which means that, if you and your spouse moved to Florida after being married in another state or country, Florida would have refused your right to divorce.

 

We know, that’s completely illogical. It’s also completely true.

 

Today, of course, Florida will allow you to divorce, provided you’ve lived in the state for at least six months before filing. But it can get pretty complex.

Before you divorce, these things have to happen:

 

  • A decision on how to divide assets, debts, and other property must be reached.
  • If spousal support is an issue in your case, a decision must be made regarding the amount of alimony payments.

 

If you have children, you also must:

 

  • Decide on co-parenting and timesharing between parents.
  • Decide who will pay child support and how much will be paid.

If you and your spouse are in agreement on all of these things, we can proceed with an uncontested mediated divorce, cooperative divorce, or collaborative divorce.

 

If one spouse refuses to cooperate, things get more complicated – and that’s before we get into the ways the law is still harder on LGBT couples.

 

We will get into that for you, though, and we’ll help you make it work. If you’re seeking an LGBT Divorce Lawyer in Florida, the Morgan Divorce Law Firm has you covered.
