Zimmer, Mathiesen & Associates stands at the forefront of LGBTQ divorce law in Suffolk County, New York. As pioneers in the field, we have championed the rights of LGBTQ couples since the historic passage of the Marriage Equality Act in 2011. With the legalization of same-sex marriage, new legal challenges emerged, and our firm was among the first to navigate these uncharted waters. Today, we continue to lead the way in providing expert legal representation for LGBTQ individuals seeking representation in both family court or a divorce proceeding.

Legal Rights and Recognition

With landmark Supreme Court rulings such as United States v. Windsor and the nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage in 2015, LGBTQ couples gained equal recognition under federal and state law. This groundbreaking shift ensures that LGBTQ couples are entitled to the same legal benefits, rights, and privileges as heterosexual married couples. At Zimmer, Mathiesen & Associates, we are dedicated to ensuring that our LGBTQ clients receive the full extent of their legal entitlements, whether it involves tax benefits, inheritance rights, custodial rights, retirement and asset division, or healthcare decision-making.

Navigating the Divorce Process

Divorce can be a complex and emotionally challenging process for any couple, and LGBTQ divorces are no exception. While New York law treats LGBTQ divorces in the same manner as heterosexual divorces, there are often unique considerations and challenges involved. Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in handling LGBTQ divorces and understand the nuances and complexities that may arise. Whether it’s issues related to child custody, child support, spousal support, or equitable distribution, we provide compassionate and expert guidance to our clients every step of the way.

Addressing Unique Concerns

In LGBTQ divorces, there may be additional concerns that require special attention and understanding. For example, children of LGBTQ couples may face discrimination or unique challenges related to their parents’ gender identity or transition. Our attorneys are sensitive to these issues and work tirelessly to ensure that the best interests of both our clients and their children are protected throughout the divorce process. We provide tailored legal solutions that address the specific needs and circumstances of each individual case.
