Prior to the legalization of gay marriage in Florida, there was arguably no option for same-sex divorce. It stands to reason that since same-sex marriage is now legal, so is same-sex divorce.

The recent landmark Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states has raised a slew of related legal questions. For some same-sex couples, questions of divorce, as it pertains to same-sex unions, will inevitably arise. Fortunately, these questions can be answered by attorneys such as Mary Zogg, of Florida’s Family Law Advocate.
“Prior to the legalization of gay marriage in Florida, there was arguably no option for same-sex divorce,” said Mary, who specializes in divorce cases, including same-sex divorce. “It stands to reason that since same-sex marriage is now legal, so is same-sex divorce.”
Before gay marriage was legalized, the same-sex divorcing couple would have had to seek to dissolve the marriage, as if it were an out-of-state contract, as there was the possibility that the divorce statutes would not have applied. Additionally, same-sex couples who were legally married in a state that allowed same-sex marriage could not get a divorce in a state that did not allow same-sex marriage.
“Now, same-sex couples that were stuck in what has come to be known in the LGBT community as ‘wed-lock’ presumably have the right to end their marriage,” said Mary.
Petitioners seeking to end a same-sex marriage should obtain legal services to dissolve their union, such as those provided by attorney Mary Zogg. For more information on same-sex divorce or family law, please call Mary at (954) 703-0005, or visit yourfamilylawadvocate.com.
