Charlotte Same-Sex Divorce Attorneys

LGBT Divorce & Separation Counsel in Charlotte & Weddington

LGBT and same-sex divorce should be handled by attorneys who are familiar with resolving the unique issues faced in same-sex family law cases. Even though same-sex marriage is legal, divorce brings up many complex considerations, especially in the realm of child custody and child support agreements.

When you divorce, North Carolina courts will only allow you to finalize agreements in the best interests of your children and as fairly as possible, with respect to each spouse. Of course, there are exceptions, and you need a determined Charlotte divorce lawyer to protect your interests.

Many people think they do not need a lawyer to dissolve a domestic partnership agreement, cohabitation agreement, tenancy agreement, or even a divorce. But once complex and contentious issues of property, debt, and child custody arise, most realize the need for effective representation and dispute resolution experience.

Contact Epperson Law Group, PLLC today at (704) 200-9278 for experienced same-sex divorce counsel. We serve clients in Charlotte, Weddington, Boone, and throughout North Carolina.

Experienced Counsel for Same-Sex & LGBT Family Law Matters

At Epperson Law Group, PLLC, we will guide you through the process, customize your strategies, enable informed decision-making, protect your rights, advocate for your goals, and shield your children from the legal process. Our lead Charlotte same-sex divorce attorneys bring over 50 years of collective legal experience to your case, including a strong focus on family law resolutions and several years as U.S. Military JAG Corps officers.

Our team is fully equipped to help you manage matters related to family law, including estate planning, real estate matters, and business law concerns. We can help you create a life plan.

From our offices in Charlotte and Boone, we represent LGBT couples in Charlotte and across the state in issues related to:

  • Estate planning: Divorce means that you will have to modify your estate plan, including wills, powers of attorney, healthcare proxies, partnership agreements, trusts, life insurance, and guardians for minor children. Prior to same-sex marriage legalization, many couples had to solidify rights through estate plans and domestic partnership agreements. This complex series of contracts must be unwound and pieced back together separately when you divorce.
  • Real estate and property ownership: Another contract unique to many LGBT couples is the joint tenancy of real estate. Your marital home and other real estate investments will have to be part of your equitable distribution of property plan. The courts try their best to make these distribution agreements fair, but you really need a lawyer to be your advocate.
  • Support and other financial matters: Your agreement will also involve marital debts, retirement accounts, inheritance, other property, and investments. Additionally, the alimony award, child support payments, contributions to the marriage, and each individual asset will be factors in your property distribution plan. Our Charlotte divorce attorneys will protect your rights and interests in the valuation and distribution of all property.
  • Child custody and parenting plans: If you are not the biological parent of your child, custody may be a very serious concern. If just one parent legally adopted a child, the other parent will not have custody rights. If you are married and legally adopted your child together, your custody rights will be the same as a heterosexual couple's rights.

It is crucial to address your child custody, parenting plan, and child support concerns with an experienced family law attorney. When you work with our team, will help you achieve your goals in your children's best interests while working to shield them from the legal process and protect their safety.
