If you are seeking a same-sex divorce or domestic partnership dissolution, it is important that you seek highly qualified legal counsel to ensure the protection of your rights. While same-sex marriage is now legal in Nevada, many couples live under domestic partnership agreements from before. While same-sex divorce is handled in the same manner as any other divorce, the dissolution of a domestic partnership may require additional considerations.
Key issues that must be properly managed include:
- Property division
- Spousal support
- Child support
- Child custody or visitation

Same-Sex Divorce In Las Vegas And Nevada — Serving The LGBTQ Community
We understand that many of our clients are facing some of the most difficult times of their lives. In addition to the emotional upheaval created by the breakdown of a once-treasured relationship, our clients face difficult financial burdens that result from the dissolution process or the divorce. People who once lived on two incomes must now divide property and live on separate incomes.
When children are involved, the hardship is compounded. Parents who had the benefit of raising their minor children under the same roof now must find a way to effectively co-parent from separate residences.
Our focus in each of these difficult cases is simple: To protect our clients' rights and reach the most favorable outcome in the most efficient manner possible. From experience, we understand that property and custody issues can often be resolved by communication, negotiation and mediation. When it is necessary to fight for the protection of our clients' rights and interests in the courtroom, however, we have the trial experience to provide the strong advocacy our clients require.
