Same-Sex Divorce Mediation

Same-Sex Divorce Mediation

In June of 2015, the United States Supreme Court made a ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This ruling has gone down in history as one of the greatest achievements in our country’s fight for equality. While this is an absolute victory for our society, it also has brought new dynamics to the surface, such as how to handle a same-sex divorce. While the concept of divorce and property division is not new, finding an attorney who you can confidently rely on to navigate these circumstances can be a bit difficult. At Renken Lawfirm in Galveston, TX we help couples from all walks of life come to divorce agreements that fit their individual needs.
