Many people do not realize that by getting married, they are giving the State the opportunity to involve itself in their personal business in variety of different ways. For same-sex couples, this is especially true should you decide to end your relationship. Once the State legally recognizes your domestic partnership or marriage, it also has the right to govern how it terminates.
Same-sex couples face many of the same issues heterosexual couples face in divorce. These issues can make the entire process more complicated and can include the division of property, the division of debt, awarding spousal support and attorneys’ fees and the development of a parenting plan.
