Same-sex divorce and parental rights

Same-sex Florida couples who are getting a divorce might run into issues surrounding child custody. Problems may arise if either person is not legally considered the child's legal parent. In Mississippi, the state Supreme Court is making a decision on a case in which a woman is requesting parental rights for the child borne by her ex-wife.

Retirement and divorce

Florida is a popular place for many people to retire. A thorny issue that comes up when couples are planning retirement is divorce, which can cause both partners change the plans they had made for many years. Divorce among older couples, also known as "gray divorce," is on the rise.

Same-sex couples face particular challenges in divorce

Same-sex couples can run into the same types of obstacles as heterosexual marriages, and for some people in Florida, this can mean divorce. However, there are some additional complications that can arise for same-sex couples that are ending their marriages, such as the division of property and the handling parental rights and custody.
