Nassau County Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer

We Proudly Serve New York's LGBTQ Community

At Jason M. Barbara & Associates, P.C., we handle same sex divorces and are proud to serve and New York's LGBT community. Following the Supreme Court's ruling on Obergfell v. Hodges, same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide in 2015. Just like any marriage, not all LGBTQ marriages end up working and many gay, lesbian, and queer couples end up dissolving their unions. At Jason Barbara & Associates, P.C., our Nassau County divorce attorneys help both heterosexual and same-sex couples and their families with the various types of legal issues that may arise while dissolving a marriage. We draw upon our extensive experience to help craft personalized solutions for our clients, understanding that family law matters can be especially challenging and emotional, especially for those who have had to fight for the right to marriage. Call us now at (516) 406-8381 for additional information about your case.

Same-Sex Divorce Services We Provide

Splitting is difficult, no matter whether you're gay or straight. If you're in a same-sex marriage, it can be a nightmare. While marriage equality advocates across the nation are celebrating their victory, the issue of same-sex divorce is an often overlooked aspect of marriage equality.

If you have the right to marry, you should have the same right to divorce. Our firm has experience handling the delicate matters involved in same-sex divorce, including:

Complications arise among gay couples who raised children together but only one was the adoptive or biological parent. Since New York doesn't recognize "de facto" parents – those who share in the raising of a child while living with the child for other reasons than money, this can cause major problems for either party when it comes to visitation rights and child support. In effect, same-sex parents can get divorced in New York, but the state doesn't necessarily enforce parental right and responsibilities.

Contact Jason M. Barbara & Associates, P.C. for Help

Gay or straight, breaking up can be hard to do. At Jason M. Barbara & Associates, P.C., we believe that you too deserve to have your rights to your children, your property, and support protected. We have years of relevant experience and many of our same-sex clients have had children that were conceived with an egg donor, a surrogate, or adopted.

We understand that same-sex divorce can be overwhelming, but our goal is to ensure that you fully understand your rights and obligations under your law, and that you're fully aware of all of your options. We handle many same-sex divorces through collaborative divorce, mediation and where contested, through litigation.

Contact our Nassau County same-sex divorce lawyer today for caring, compassionate, knowledgeable support in your same-sex divorce.
