Helping Same-Sex Couples Separate Their Lives
On December 2, 2013, same-sex marriage became legal in Hawaii. This makes all married couples equal in the eyes of the law, which means that same-sex couples who get married can now get divorced. This is important because certain rights are granted to each person in a divorce that would not be granted to an unmarried couple. Our Honolulu lawyer helps same-sex couples with their divorces.
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we realize that divorce is difficult, regardless of your circumstances. We understand the issues facing LGBT couples and know how to deal with them respectfully and efficiently. Scot Stuart Brower has guided many couples through the divorce process and has in-depth knowledge of the legal system. He will help you get what you need from your divorce to move forward with your life.
The Same For All
Now that marriage is legal for same-sex couples, all of the laws apply equally to everyone. However, LGBT couples may have concerns that differ from opposite-sex couples, such as stepparent rights. Scot Stuart Brower will address these concerns and use his skills and experience to help you reach your goals.
Civil Unions Or Alternative Arrangements
For individuals who want to separate from their partners and are currently joined by civil union or who have legal documents in place that give them the same rights as a married couple, we can help you alter or redraft these agreements. We can dissolve your civil union or remove your partner from your important legal documents and ensure that your rights are still protected.
