Same Sex Divorce

How is same-sex divorce different?

There are unique issues that arise in a same-sex divorce. It is important to consult with a lawyer who concentrates in this area of family law and has an understanding as to the same-sex laws so he or she can actively protect your rights and interests in any issue that may arise: child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, property division and more.

 

The Law in Hawaii

Hawaii recognizes same-sex marriages and also has the power to grant same-sex divorces where the parties are residents of a state that does not recognize same-sex marriage and/or divorce. While the federal law has changed, state laws regarding custody, support and adoption have not yet all followed suit and state laws can be very different and subject to change.
