SAME SEX DIVORCE ATTORNEY IN DENVER, CO
In the summer of 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that same sex marriage would be legal in all 50 states. The decision fell under the ruling of the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Under the Fourteenth Amendment, states must license a marriage between two people regardless of sexual orientation. States must also recognize a marriage of two same sex people if their marriage was lawfully performed out-of-state. Now, any couple who wishes to marry in the state of Colorado (or any other state) may legally obtain a marriage license with no objections.
As equal rights for marriage in same sex couples became established, so did divorce. The rights established for same sex divorce include all of those that were previouisly established for their heterosexual counterparts. This includes things like child decision making, child support, spousal maintenance, and property division.
