When a couple with children separates — it doesn't matter if the parents are gay or straight — many challenging issues need to be addressed. One of these issues is the custody of the children.
Same-sex custody matters can be complicated. The main reason is novelty: Same-sex marriage became law in 2013 and has only been in place since 2014. If you have concerns about LGBT divorce, visitation or the custody of your child or children, we can address them and help you take the action necessary to resolve the matter.
