Gay and Lesbian Divorce Attorneys
At Menar & Menar, Attorneys At Law, our lesbian and gay divorce lawyers can assist with issues concerning:
- Gay or lesbian divorce. This will involve a fair division of assets according to equitable distribution or New Jersey partnership laws. Alimony is another issue that can be complicated and subject to court hearings.
- Termination of a domestic partnership or civil union. Like the end of a marriage, the end of a domestic partnership or civil union will also give rise to a range of other matters to sort out, from spousal maintenance to custody, and more.
- Children. Where marriages and divorce take place, the matter of children can have unique aspects for same-sex partners. These can relate to adoption, child custody, and child support. Custody can be complex for non-biological parents or parents who have not adopted their partner’s biological child.
