Same-sex couples must stay on top of changing laws

On Behalf of | Oct 30, 2014 | Same-Sex Partners

In last week’s blog post, we discussed how the legality of same-sex marriage in Colorado is undergoing a lot of firsts. All of these firsts mean that the laws are constantly changing. Staying on top of all the changes, rulings and precedents being set can be a challenging undertaking. We understand that you might not have all the time in the world to keep up with everything going on when it comes to same-sex marriage and divorce.

If you are in a same-sex relationship that is falling apart, you might wonder exactly how all the changes going on might affect you. We can help you figure out how the changes will affect you if you end up going through a divorce. From creating parenting plans and working through child custody matters to figuring out how to divide assets and debts, we can help you learn about the laws so that you can make informed decisions.

For same-sex couples who have children, child custody is a top priority. There are several considerations that must be made when dealing with same-sex child custody matters. If the child is a biological child of one partner and an adopted child of the other, the child custody issues might be more complicated than a situation in which one parent has no biological or adoption ties to the child.

It is important for you to focus on moving forward with your new life, especially if you have children. We can put the time in to research laws that affect your case. You don’t have to sit down and continue to stay in a relationship that is long over.
