Yes, for a lot of same-sex couples, their relationships span many years during which they had no legal right to marry, and as a result, assets that would be considered marital in similar opposite-sex relationships are technically separate assets.
It is possible to convert separate assets to marital assets that are subject to equitable distribution in Brooklyn courts, and our attorneys take a very forthright approach to creating as much marital property from separate property as we can.
We represent all of our clients vigorously, and when same-sex couples divorce, they are no exception.
We understand the sometimes unique circumstances of divorcing gay couples, and work to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected and their divorce settlement leaves them in the best possible position at the end of their marriage.
