If children are involved than California typically requires that you attempt to attempt mediation before you go through litigation. A mediator is a third party whose goal is to help you and your same-sex partner negotiate a resolution. The LGBT Family Law Service works with mediator to help make sure they understand LGBT rights.
As a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individual in a same-sex marriage or registered domestic partnership in California, you have rights and obligations that are similar to that of heterosexual couples when when it comes to divorce. Just like heterosexual couples you can face issues such as property division, child custody, spousal support, complex tax or estate issues, parentage issues and more that are actually unique to same-sex couples.
