New Port Richey Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer
In-Depth Knowledge & Compassion for Complex Proceedings
Same-sex marriage is a hard-fought right, but, like any couple, not all relationships may last. When working through a same-sex divorce, many of the issues that occur are the same as in a traditional divorce. However, there are also some special circumstances that can arise.
Like other types of divorce, a same-sex divorce can be contested or uncontested. In either case, a New Port Richey divorce attorney can fight to protect your rights. We can also work to make sure that the court addresses the unique issues of a same-sex divorce fairly.
Some of the concerns unique to same-sex divorce include:
- Custody when a child is adopted or only one party is the biological parent
- The currently short duration of legal same-sex marriages, which affects alimony
- Division of property when the marriage was a short duration
For help efficiently navigating the court process to reach a fair resolution, trust the help of a Pasco County divorce attorney. With nearly 40 years of experience, Dale L. Bernstein, Chartered Law Office knows how to handle these challenging situations.

Children in Same-Sex Divorces
Same-sex divorces where there are children involved will be the most challenging. If there is only one biological parent and there was no second-parent adoption, the other party may have no parental rights and there would be no visitation or child support.
If both parties have parental rights, you will need to reach agreements regarding custody, visitation, child support, and parenting. A settlement needs to be in writing on issues ranging from paying for college to religious upbringing.
To help protect your rights and assist you in exercising the parental, financial, and property rights, contact Dale L. Bernstein, Chartered Law Office. We understand what you are going through and can help you with the legal issues you face. With less pressure on you from the court, you can focus on your personal healing and how to move forward with your life.
