We have the experience to navigate the complex system for you
At The Law Office of Kevin R. Pettrey, PLC, we are prepared to assist same-sex couples navigate the divorce courts throughout Virginia. Same-sex marriage is marriage like any heterosexual marriage. The same problems are faced by all married people.
If you and your partner are ending your marriage, you need an attorney prepared to litigate same-sex divorce in Virginia. Virginia law will need to change in this realm, as caselaw could be interpreted to limit some rights. However, this is not acceptable or permissible. You have the same rights as anyone else.
Equitable distribution, support, marital fault, and child custody/visitation disputes may arise that must be dealt with. This may mean contentious litigation, though we will try to avoid this when possible.
You need an experienced family law attorney to protect your rights.
