Same-sex marriages share the same rights and privileges as any other marriage. This means when these marriages do not go according to plan, and the couple chooses to divorce the process is also the same. However, same-sex marriages are not always considered as traditional, which can make coming to a divorce agreement a bit more involved. At Renken Law Firm, we have experience handling many different types of divorce cases, from mediating same-sex divorces to going to court to represent one party of a same-sex marriage in a divorce. We understand every divorce case is unique and we believe in treating it as such. When it comes to handling your case our attorneys are prepared to help you with:
Child Custody: For same-sex marriages, custody over a child may be less traditional than with other divorce cases. Working with an experienced same-sex attorney can help you navigate this difficult time and get the results you need for the happiness and wellbeing of your family. Schedule a consultation with Renken Law Firm in Galveston, TX today.
Child Support: Child support is a topic that can be difficult to tackle in any marriage. Our team of legal experts can ensure your child’s needs are being met financially and otherwise. Talk to one of our attorneys today.
Same-Sex Mediation: When both parties in a marriage wish to work together to reach an amicable divorce agreement mediation can be an extremely beneficial option. Not only is a mediated divorce typically much less expensive, but it also is a private method of divorce. Instead of having the proceedings of your divorce become public knowledge, mediation allows you to keep it between the divorcing parties and one mediator. Have the final say in your divorce agreement when you choose mediation.
