Oregon Law Treats All Divorces Equally
Divorce is divorce in the eyes of Oregon law. So whether you’re part of a same-sex couple or other LGBTQ relationship, the dissolution of your marriage will be treated the same as any other.
This means you’ll have the option to pursue divorce in either an uncontested or contested manner. You can also pursue settling differences during your divorce in many ways, including divorce mediation or collaborative divorce.
No matter which route you take, your divorce will cover topics such as:
- Property division
- Child custody
- Spousal support/maintenance
- Child support
You’ll want a clear understanding of your options and what you’ll need to resolve during your divorce before proceeding. Consider discussing your situation with experienced divorce attorney Stacy Regele.
Potential Complications Involved In LGBTQ Divorce
LGBTQ+ divorce does raise some issues that can increase complications during the process.
For instance, LGBTQ couples were unable to marry until 2014, but many of them lived together for years before the law changing. These long-term, pre-marital relationships can sometimes come into play in court. Proceedings involving child custody for same-sex couples can be difficult to maneuver, as well.
We know that your relationship with your child needs protection and care. Let us provide you with the supportive guidance you’ll need to ensure your bond remains strong.
