Divorces can be highly charged and frustrating. Working toward a dissolution of marriage can often be a lengthy process because unforeseen problems can arise in these situations. Working toward a resolution and making sure your rights are protected is important when dealing with a divorce. Parties of a same-sex marriage are offered the same protection as a traditional marriage but during the process of divorce, many issues can arise.

Handled much like other family law and divorce cases, the professionals at Ball Morse Lowe will help provide professional counsel to ensure your rights are protected and you can work on your life post-divorce. Even in cases of same-sex divorce common issues arise including:

  • Property allocations – Property allocation can include personal property, real estate, and business interests (if any).
  • Financial obligations and allocations – This can include debts that may be incurred by both parties. Debts come in many forms including business debts, credit card debts, and others. Your finances are carefully reviewed.
  • Child custody – When a child is involved it will include custody and child support issues that have their own complexities.

Even though this is only a small amount of issues that arise it is important to forge a plan that not only protects your rights but protects your future too. Working with a skilled and experienced divorce attorney in Dallas will help you understand the legal process.

Forms of Same-Sex Divorce

As with divorces of traditional couples, same-sex couples can see the same types of divorce.

Contested Divorce – Couples can find that they are not in agreement on several items. This can become highly charged and highly complex. It is important to understand what is at stake with a contested divorce.  

Uncontested Divorce – Both parties agree on issues regarding the divorce. This could include issues on the division of debt, property, etc. Uncontested divorces can become contested divorces.

Divorce Mediation – Working through a mediator might be able to solve problems within the divorce and avoid trial. In some divorce cases, this might be necessary. Mediation does take the parties temporarily out of the courtroom.

Collaborative Divorce – Settling on some issues is important and a collaborative process is necessary. Avoiding the courtroom and settling into a mediation or negotiation forum might be the appropriate way to approach the problem.

Divorce Arbitration – A private judge can decide the case and the issues are normally worked through a negotiating process.

Divorces are ripe with unforeseen issues. These issues can make it difficult to follow through on a divorce, which is one reason it is important to seek counsel. No divorce is ever an easy undertaking. The process is not only difficult it prevents you from achieving your goals.  With so many factors at play, it is important to obtain proper guidance.
