Put simply, there is no easy way. However, you can significantly minimize stress and confusion by bringing in a legal professional who is well-versed in California family and divorce law. Despite the increasing use of online divorce services and the low-cost alternative they provide, divorcing couples in Los Angeles need legal counsel more than ever.
Same-sex divorce can get messy when spouses are technically citizens of other states or are seeking to get divorced in a state other than the one in which they were married. Couples who took the “destination wedding” route and got married abroad or in another state often face challenges getting divorced in their home state.
California family laws are typically “gay friendly,” but it can be more difficult to resolve matters of property division, debts, child custody, alimony, etc. if either spouse lives outside the state of California or is technically still a resident of another state. It may also be challenging to enforce the terms of your divorce after it is finalized, as various states have different laws concerning same-sex partnerships that may make arrangements like same-sex parenting more difficult.

At Korol & Velen, we are highly familiar with the process of same-sex divorce and we already know what challenges you are likely to face.
