Same Sex Divorce & Separation Attorney | New York City

If you are in a same sex marriage and are contemplating a divorce, we invite you to consider The Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC for the following reasons:

(1) At the Firm we have represented many clients in same sex divorces – we understand the distinctions between same sex and traditional divorces – we have found that there are key distinctions in same sex divorces.

(2) We understand the custody implications that may arise in same sex divorces particularly when only one parent is the biological parent.

Below are a few issues, which you should discuss with a qualified attorney:

  1. Portability of marital rights and protections to other states and countries.
  2. Adoption of children of the marriage by the non-biological same sex parent.
  3. Recognition by the federal government.
  4. Tax implications.
  5. Long-term care options.
  6. Estate planning and ancillary probate issues from other states intersecting with probate in New York (probating a will upon the death of one of the parties).

The Law Firm of Poppe & Associates, PLLC is able to assist you in addressing many of these issues. The Firm also works with professionals in the areas of tax law and long-term care insurance to assist clients with long care decisions and estate planning.

Efficient, Reasonable, Sensitive and Professional

“I interviewed over 15 lawyers until I met Mia. I went to the first hour consultation and immediately I knew that she was the professional that should represent me in my divorce. My case, as probably many others, turned out from a simple case to a complicated one after my partner changed her mind over and over on our settlement agreement. Mia took the lead and closed my – over 2 year – process divorced in less than 5 months. Her team is capable, professional, smart and punctual. I fully recommend Mia and her firm.”
