Same-Sex Divorce Lawyer in Worcester

Massachusetts has always been a leader on same-sex marriage: Our state supreme court, in Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, decided that prohibiting gay marriage was unconstitutional back in 2004, a full decade before same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide. The Goodridge decision made Massachusetts one of only six locations worldwide to allow same-sex couples to marry, marking a huge victory for the strong LGBT communities in Boston, Provincetown, and the rest of Massachusetts.

Of course, with the opportunity to marry has come the burden of divorce. Same-sex and LGBT couples have not been immune to the possibility of their marriage ending in divorce. What has become clear over the last decade, however, is that LGBT and same-sex couples sometimes face special challenges in divorce and child custody cases that are not present in “traditional” divorce cases. As we explain, below, LGBT family law cases involve several unique nuances that must be considered by LGBT clients and their attorneys.

We are an LGBT-friendly and gay-friendly law firm. If you and your spouse are considering a divorce, reach out to our same-sex divorce attorneys.
