Same-Sex Family Law

Our attorney, Gary Frank, has long been a staunch supporter of civil rights, including marital rights for the LGBT community. Now that same-sex marriage is finally a reality, it is important for gay and lesbian couples to understand their new rights, and how to protect themselves in the unfortunate event that a divorce or separation occurs.

We can help you preserve your property before a marriage ever takes place by preparing a Prenuptial Agreement. And we can protect you throughout the divorce process by making sure you receive a fair division of property; and that spousal maintenance is awarded if a party is entitled to it under Arizona law. If you have children, we will work hard to ensure that you come away with a legal decision-making and parenting-time plan (formerly known as custody) that is in their best interests and yours, and that child support is included.

If divorce is inevitable, it is always a good idea to explore peaceful alternatives as a first option, before jumping headlong into an adversarial and often expensive litigation. Mediation and collaborative divorce are two such options. Mr. Frank is a compassionate mediator with many years of experience working with families, including LGBT couples.

When acting as a divorce attorney, Mr. Frank encourages his clients to engage in mediation. He will help you choose a top-notch mediator and he’ll guide you through the process, giving you the best odds of a favorable outcome. But while mediation is often successful, it does not always result in a settlement, and sometimes divorcing parties have no choice but to turn to the courts to resolve their issues. In that scenario, Mr. Frank is a strong and experienced Family Law litigator who will fight to protect your interests.
