Same-Sex Family Law Can Include Complex Issues
Vella & King can manage any same-sex family law need, including:
- Ending a marriage
- Determining whether spousal support will be awarded
- Dividing the couple’s assets and debts
- Creating and finalizing child custody agreements
- Requesting or contesting child support orders
We also understand that some couples who are ending a relationship may not have married. In these cases, it is important to work with a lawyer who thoroughly understands this aspect of Alabama family law. You may need a lawyer with extensive experience handling property division and spousal support in these situations.
Additionally, same-sex couples who are divorcing or ending their relationship may have more complex child custody issues such as:
- Whether the child was adopted by both parents
- Whether the child is the biological child of one parent
- Whether reproductive measures like in vitro fertilization or a surrogate were used
No matter how complicated the custody issue, you can rely on our attorneys to approach it with the seriousness and care it deserves.
