The legal landscape for divorcing same sex couples is extremely complicated due to the inconsistency of state and federal laws.  Even with the latest DOMA decision there are still many issues unique to same sex couples.  These differences require careful consideration of the history of the couple’s relationship in the negotiations. 

In a Collaborative case, the collective wisdom and experience of the Collaborative professionals is particularly crucial.  For example, discussion of the relationship’s history can be carefully planned and facilitated by the two attorneys and neutral coach.  The joint engagement of a financial specialist can be especially helpful in navigating the financial implications for a same sex couple.
