Same-Sex Divorce

What is Same-Sex Divorce?

Same-Sex marriage is a marriage between two persons of the same gender.  Other than the fact that the parties in a same-sex marriage are of the same gender, the body of law about divorce applies equally to same-sex couples as to so-called “traditional marriages.”

Salem, MA Divorce Attorney John G. DiPiano is Experienced in Same-Sex Divorce

Attorney DiPiano is experienced in Same-Sex Divorce.  Some same-sex marriage clients may feel as though they need, or require, a gay lawyer to represent them in a gay divorce.  Such is not the case. The legal issues are the same in Same-Sex Divorce as in traditional marriages. The client should hire a lawyer who is well-versed and experienced in Divorce Law and with whom that client is most comfortable because a good working relationship between the attorney-client team is essential to the client understanding the process and being satisfied with the results.
