LEGAL GUIDE
Written by attorney Thomas Patrick Gill Jr.

Are there different laws for same-sex couples going through a divorce?

The laws in Florida are generally the same for same sex couples as they are for opposite sex couples. For instance, one of the parties had to have been a continuous resident for six months preceding the filing of the petition for dissolution of marriage. However, when there are children involved, you should speak to an attorney because the laws treat that situation in a unique manner.
