LGBT+ Divorce Attorney in Franklin, Tennessee
Helping You Move Forward After Divorce
The recent ruling allowing LGBT couples to marry in the state of Tennessee has been viewed by many as a win for the rights of all couples. While LGBT couples head to the altar, others face a great deal of confusion when attempting to end their existing marriages.
The Nashville LGBT divorce attorney at Middle Tennessee Family Law offers comprehensive guidance to LGBT clients throughout the divorce process. Leveraging years of experience, and detailed knowledge of Tennessee LGBT divorce laws, attorney Tiffany Johns helps you address each and every detail of your proceedings.
What Unique Challenges Do Divorcing Lgbt Couples Face?
With same-sex marriage laws so freshly enacted, LGBT couples face some unique challenges when filing for divorce, including:
Wading through unclear laws: Much debate has ensued over the legal details relating to LGBT marriage in the state of Tennessee. As LGBT marriage laws are enacted or evolve, the clarity of these guidelines can become clouded. Undergoing an LGBT divorce in such a changing legal environment can be difficult, especially when the laws relating to health insurance coverage, pensions and other factors are in flux.
Toeing the line of history: LGBT divorce is a new concept within the state of Tennessee, and throughout much of the United States. The relatively recent legal recognition of LGBT divorce, and the ongoing discussions relating to the practice, may place added stress on both partners.
Unique treatment: Some court officials take a religious stance against LGBT marriage. Despite their best intentions to remain unbiased during legal proceedings, these views may result in your being treated differently from a traditional divorcing couple. Limiting the impact opposing viewpoints have on your proceedings is important, especially when those views delay your ability to move forward with the life you deserve.
