Gay And Lesbian Breakups Atlanta Lawyer

Same-sex divorce does not exist in Georgia, since the state does not recognize gay or lesbian marriage. Several options exist for same-sex couples during a breakup, depending on if there is a domestic partnership agreement. The best course of action is to discuss your options with a knowledgeable lawyer.

At the law office of Jody A. Miller, esq. Attorney At Law, we assist clients with every legal concern following the breakup of their same-sex relationship. Often, this entails helping to execute the provisions of the domestic partnership agreement, which essentially serves couples similarly to how a prenuptial agreement does for married couples, although it can be much more complex. This includes property division, child custody and any provisions made regarding financial "spousal" support. We will work to resolve any disputes that arise through alternative dispute resolution, thereby keeping your case out of court.

Protecting Your Rights After A Same-Sex Relationship Ends

If a domestic partnership agreement does not exist, there are still options under Georgia laws that we can take to resolve matters pertaining to finances, property, support and same-sex custody rights.

With more than 20 years of experience, attorney Jody A. Miller is able to think creatively, working outside of the typical box to find solutions, keeping your legal, financial and emotional considerations in mind. If you were legally married in a state that allowed same-sex marriage, I can still work with you to find workable solutions. Whenever possible, we will use mediation and the collaborative process to achieve resolutions for property distribution, spousal/child support payments, parenting plans and other items relating to the breakup.
