Is there a difference between LGBT divorce and traditional divorce?

The divorce process for heterosexual and LGBT couples is the same: one or both spouses can initiate a contested or uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both parties would need to cooperate, coming to a mutual agreement that is satisfactory to both for all outstanding issues.

In a contested divorce, these decisions can be negotiated, but if no agreement is found at settlement, the court will issue a binding judgement. Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, is well-versed in both contested and uncontested divorce proceedings.

Protecting the Rights of Gay & Lesbian Parents

In the state of California, same-sex couples can register their domestic partnership or get married, acquiring the same legal protections within the state that were formerly reserved for heterosexual couples. California courts recognize that both of a child?s parents can be women or both can be men. If gay or lesbian partners have cooperated in conceiving and raising a child, then both have the rights and responsibilities of parents.

If you need help resolving a same-sex issue involving your children, we at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP are here for you. Our firm assists same-sex couples in protecting their relationships with their children. Children of a domestic partnership have full rights to insurance coverage and inheritance in California. Our attorneys will help you draft a will designating a guardian in the event of your death and an estate plan to see your property is preserved for your children.

If you are legally separated or facing dissolution of your partnership, our firm can help you work out a parenting plan and a fair child support order that will protect your relationship with your child. Make sure your children have the protection they need.

Update: Case Closed! I just want to say thank you to the whole Kasper and Lugay Team! Brent got The “W” in my case. They worked hard on my child custody battle and were super flexible with my payments! Anyone that’s going through a separation knows the stress courts can bring, but Brent and his team made sure to make everything fast and easy as possible for me! Thank You Again! I hope I never have to go through something like this again but if I ever do I know who to call!

I hired Brent Kaspar & his team to assist me in the dissolution of marriage from my wife of 9+ years and love for 14+ years. This is obviously not any type of experience anyone want to go through, however I wanted the best direct & logical approach as the emotional & financial sides of this transition are difficult enough. Brent impressed me immediately with his knowledge of the process as well as his experience with every local attorney, mediator, judge, and whomever else I may be faced with addressing.... I would want him on my side.

My case was not simple or easy. After 5 years, my ex-husband, decided to try and terminate all alimony on a 26 year marriage, as well as obtain funds from me....The process with Brent Kaspar and this entire group was very thorough as well as methodical to achieve the end goal. Although there is always a high amount of stress when dealing with any legal matter, these individuals as are excellent at their jobs, relentless on getting information, light hearted when need be, and strong willed when dealing with others legal nonsense. We were able to settle prior to court and obtain/protect what I intended.
