Same-sex divorce and child custody

On Behalf of | Aug 29, 2018 | Child Custody & Visitation

Any couple who works through the divorce process may face challenges. However, same-sex couples in Federal Way and all over the state of Washington may face a particularly difficult time when they decide to end their marriage, especially with important issues such as child custody. For example, some may believe that they will not be able to have any custody rights because they are not the biological parent of a child. However, it is vital to know what your legal rights are as you approach the divorce process and familiarize yourself with the laws in Washington.

When it comes to child custody, the best interests of the child should remain at the forefront. If you are in the middle of a dispute over custody, you should do all you can to pursue a favorable outcome. Some people who are in a same-sex marriage may believe that because they are not the biological parent of a child and did not adopt the child, they will not be able to secure custody rights. However, this is certainly not always the case.

Working through a same-sex divorce can be challenging from an emotional and financial perspective, but it is important to keep in mind that a much brighter future may lie ahead. If you have any areas of concern with respect to child custody, it is pivotal to develop a clearer understanding of your rights as well as the best way to move forward. Our custody section goes over other topics related to custody disputes and similar issues.
