Some of the unique challenges of marriage dissolution for same-sex couples, which can have unique complications compared to similar marriages faced by heterosexual couples, can include:

Legal Recognition: Some states may not legally recognize same-sex marriage, which can make it difficult for couples to obtain a same-sex divorce.

Division and equitable division of marital property: In cases where a couple has been together for a long time, they may have accumulated a considerable joint fortune. Dividing these assets fairly can be difficult, especially if the couple resides in a state that does not have clear guidelines for asset allocation in same-sex divorce cases. Many divorce attorneys are unable to handle the unique challenges that arise from same-sex couples breaking up, in part because there are often unclear policies as to which partner — if either — owes something like alimony.

Child Custody: When a same-sex couple has minor children, determining child custody, parental rights, and visiting arrangements can be complex. In some cases, one partner may not be recognized as the legal parent, which can make it difficult for them to claim custody or visitation rights, a unique challenge in same-sex marriages.

Health Insurance: If a couple was covered under a partner’s health plan, the divorce process may involve figuring out how to get coverage for both partners.

Pension and Retirement Benefits: Allocation of pension and retirement benefits can be complicated in any divorce case, but can be particularly difficult for same-sex couples in states that do not recognize their marriages.
