Is an LGBT divorce different than regular divorce?

Yes. Even though same-sex couples are subject to the same laws as heterosexual couples, same-sex couples face unique challenges. Since gay marriage only recently became legal, some couples may have been together for a long time, but have only been married for a short period of time. Therefore, it’s important to meet with an experienced LGBT divorce lawyer who can best advise you as to how to protect your legal rights.
