Same Sex Divorce

Same Sex Divorce Attorney

Florida’s Second District Court of Appeals (the appellate court for the Tampa Bay Area) ruled in April 2015 that same-sex couples cannot be denied access to the courts to dissolve their marriage that was legally entered into in another state. If your union is irretrievably broken, Florida Courts are now accessible to determine Equitable Distribution, Alimony, timesharing (custody) and child support. Residency requirements still apply; at least one party must have been a continuous Florida resident for at least six (6) month prior to filing for dissolution of marriage.

For child custody determinations, both parties must have a legal relationship with the child or children, i.e., both parties adopted the child(ren) or the child was born during the marriage.
