Helping Same-Sex Couples Navigate The Divorce Process
The prospect of divorce is a painful subject for any couple, but we recognize that divorce can present special challenges for same-sex families. For one thing, widespread legal recognition of same-sex marriage is still so recent that many struggling couples may not know another couple who has gone through a same-sex divorce. For couples with children, there are also unique custody and visitation issues.
Located in Garden City, New York, The Law Office of Amy Sklar recognizes these challenges and is here to help you. We represent any spouse in need of legal assistance. Whether you’re the breadwinner or the homemaker, a biological parent or an informal guardian, we can help.
Create A Fair Child Custody Arrangement
Many couples rely on informal custody agreements when times are good, only to find that these agreements fall apart when their relationship ends. This is especially true in the case of gay and lesbian divorce, when only one spouse is the biological parent, or legal adoptive parent, of the couple’s children.
Children deserve to see their parents, and we can help both spouses reach a compromise on custody and visitation that best serves the needs of their children. The details of this arrangement will depend on the details of your lives: your daily schedules, where you live and work, each parent’s history of involvement in the child’s life and many other factors.
