Monmouth County Same-Sex Divorce Lawyers
In June 2015, the Supreme Court overturned previous same-sex marriage rulings that had allowed some states to deny marriage licenses to same-sex partners. As part of this ruling, same-sex partners will also be able to legally dissolve their marriage through any process of divorce; this is important because many forms of divorce had been exceedingly complicated for same-sex partners prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling.
