Buffalo Same-Sex Divorce Attorney
A trusted Western New York divorce lawyer
In June 2011, New York became the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Along with legalizing marriage, it also opened the door for gay and lesbian couples to get divorced. To get a divorce, these same-sex couples must be married for at least six months.
Although the Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis and Associates wishes the best of luck to the recently married same-sex couples of New York, we realize that there may be some who will wish to dissolve their marriage in the future. If you are considering getting a divorce, I can help you protect your interests and end your marriage in an amicable, professional manner. A trusted family law attorney with over 20 years of experience, I am confident and comfortable with handling any aspect of same-sex divorce, including:
You can put your trust in me to provide you with the support, compassion and representation you need during these trying times.
Protect your assets from division during divorce
Before same-sex marriage became legalized, many gay and lesbian couples had been in civil unions or long-term relationships. During this time, each partner accumulated assets that might be considered separate property in New York, and not subject to division in a divorce. For same-sex couples seeking a divorce, protecting these assets can become a critical issue.
I have two decades of experience helping people defend their assets from former spouses during property division proceedings. If necessary, I consult with forensic accountants, tax specialists, business appraisers and real estate professionals to evaluate your financial situation. If you earn considerably more income than your spouse, I work to ensure that marital property is divided in a fair and equitable manner. If you believe that you may require financial support during or after divorce proceedings, I can help you receive a share of the marital estate that reflects your contributions to the household.
Whichever side of the equation you are on, I have the experience and skill to ensure your financial interests are well represented.
Compassionate representation. Proven results.
