Relentless Representation For Your Family Law Challenges

Your Trusted Legal Partners For Same-Sex Divorce

At Hecht & Associates, LLC, we understand that the end of a marriage is a significant turning point for a same-sex couple, just as is the case for spouses in a traditional marriage. Issues such as the division of assets, spousal support, and child custody and support demand resolution regardless of the nature of your union.

With over two decades of experience in family law, our firm stands as a beacon of guidance and support for custody arrangements and more. Our lead attorney’s depth of experience ensures our knowledgeable and attentive legal approach in same-sex divorces.  From law offices in Rockville, Maryland, we serve people throughout and beyond Montgomery and Howard counties. We are here to help you navigate the complexities of same-sex divorce regardless of the complexities involved.

Legal Support For Divorcing Couples In The LGBTQ+ Community

Our firm’s dedication to your case will be evident from the first consultation to the final decree. Here’s what you can expect when you partner with us to accomplish your same-sex divorce:

  • Meticulous attention to the division of marital assets for business owners or high-asset individuals, ensuring fairness and legality
  • Sensitivity and determination in resolving child custody and support matters
  • Proactive strategies to secure spousal support agreements that reflect your needs, ensuring your rights are protected whether you will pay or receive support

The decision to end marriage is never easy, but with Hecht & Associates, you have a team committed to easing the process. We offer a clear path forward for clients on this path, with legal solutions tailored to the unique aspects of your same-sex marriage. For example, if you were previously in a domestic relationship, we will determine which portion of your assets should be considered marital property. Our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of same-sex divorce, bringing a thorough understanding of Maryland law to your case. We are:

  • Highly skilled in the courtroom and adept in negotiations, particularly in high-conflict cases
  • Aggressive in protecting our clients’ interests, whether through settlement negotiations or, when necessary, litigation
  • Committed to helping you emerge from your divorce on sound footing

We help clients pursue favorable outcomes while fostering an environment of trust and optimism, drawn from our long history of handling high-stakes divorce and support cases.

While the legal framework for same-sex divorce mirrors that of other divorces, including matters of property division, alimony, and child custody, we recognize that each case carries its own personal and legal intricacies. Count on us to help you resolve any issues of note such as the following:

  • Was either or both of you previously in a domestic partnership with shared assets?
  • Did one of you adopt the other’s biological child?

No matter what the details of your case, our firm’s lawyers are ready to deliver the same caliber of advocacy and strategic planning that have defined our practice for years.

Settling Outside The Courtroom: A Viable Option

We believe in the power of resolution outside the courtroom. When you choose Hecht & Associates, LLC, to represent you in your same-sex divorce, you can expect:

  • A reasonable approach to negotiating settlement agreements.
  • A willingness to fight for your rights in court if necessary.
  • A strategic plan tailored to your unique situation and goals.

Although we are formidable advocates in trials, our firm recommends exploring avenues for out-of-court settlements when possible.
