The Special Concerns Of Same-Sex Divorces

If you and your partner waited eagerly for the day when you could legally marry in Tennessee or Mississippi, you may have joyfully planned your wedding after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage. The Supreme Court ruling granted you all the rights of an opposite sex couple, including the right to end your marriage. Now that you and your spouse are facing the challenges of divorce, you may have many questions and concerns.

The Waldrop Firm, P.C., is ready to address your concerns and guide you through the difficult stages of divorce.

With over 30 years practicing all aspects of family law, our attorney has the skills and experience to help you meet your goals. Call us at 901-410-1118 to see how we can serve you.

A Passionate Advocate For Your Rights

In the years prior to the legalization of same-sex marriage, you and your partner may have formed your own bonds. At the time, these loving acts common to couples seemed to strengthen the commitment between you. Unfortunately, they may now bring serious complications to your divorce, for example:

  • Did you and your spouse adopt a child together?
  • Did you adopt your spouse's child or vice versa?
  • Did you purchase a home together before getting married?
  • Did you accumulate other assets, such as investments, furnishings or pets, prior to your marriage?
  • Did you sign a cohabitation contract prior to your marriage?

Of course, just because your marriage was legal by federal law does not mean you will receive fair treatment in the courts of Memphis and northern Mississippi. Having The Waldrop Firm, P.C., standing by you every step of the way means having a lawyer who will fiercely advocate for your rights.
