Along with the right to marry comes the right to divorce.
It's been two years since same-sex couples gained the right to marry in Florida. Shortly after the seminal court decision in Brenner v. Scott recognized this right, Florida courts also began handling same-sex divorces.
Although the dissolution process - as well as the law - is the same regardless of the genders involved, gray areas still remain when it comes to certain aspects of same-sex divorce. Gay or lesbian couples considering dissolution should be aware of these issues and seek guidance from an attorney who understands them.
