Same sex couples now go through the same legal proceedings as heterosexual couples for the divorce process. The Atighechi Law Group aggressively and compassionately handles gay marriage divorces and paternity actions. Maryam Atighechi, Esq. has successfully handled child custody issues for same sex/gay couples who have obtained parentage through adoption or as a “presumed parent” under Family Code Section 7611.
Here are some facts from the Huffington Post regarding gay marriage:
1. Nearly 150,000 same-sex couples in the United States are either married or have domestic relationships. That is about a fifth of all same sex couples;
2. Only about 1% get divorced or have their domestic partnership terminated;
3. Nearly two-thirds of registered or married same-sex couples are lesbians, and only about a third are gay men.
