Absolutely not, the issues are the exact same as any other divorce for a Tampa Divorce Attorney. The issues are the same for a heterosexual divorce – equitable distribution, alimony, child support, time sharing, attorney’s fees, etc. Recent headlines were made prior to the legalization of same sex marriage of a couple in Tampa who were unable to get a same sex divorce despite having a valid marriage certificate from out of state. We have provided a link to the news story giving the unique set of facts confronted by the court. Given the recent decision by the United States Supreme Court, same sex marriage and thus same sex divorces are legal throughout Florida. There are now no obstacles or obstructions to a same sex divorce in Florida. Again, the issues for a Tampa Divorce Attorney are in no way different in light of the Court’s recent ruling.
