Same Sex Marriage Divorce in San Diego, CA
Are you ending a same-sex marriage in San Diego?
In modern times, same-sex divorce is governed by the same set of laws as opposite-sex divorce, but there are some unique issues to consider and for which to prepare.
While the process of divorce is largely the same for both same- and opposite-sex couples, there are some important factors to consider in addition to the basics of divorce: be proactive, be prepared, and obtain competent counsel – not necessarily in that order.
San Diego was among the earliest states (after New York) to begin licensing same-sex marriages in 2013 when it enacted the Marriage Equality Act.
Following the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obergfell v. Hodges, same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide in 2015.
