In late June of 2015, the United States Supreme Court made a ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This ruling has been marked as one of the greatest achievements in our country’s fight for equality. While we look at this as a victory, marriage for same-sex couples comes with more family matters than just a simple marriage certificate. When any couple chooses to get married, they are choosing to combine their property and assets. Unfortunately, this means, whenever a couple chooses to separate and end their marriage, there is a long list of family matters that may come into play. These include but are not limited to, child custody, child support, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, division of property, visitation rights, child abuse, domestic violence, and more.
