Same Sex Family Law

Protecting Your Rights In Same-Sex Family Law Matters

Now that same-sex marriage is legal, issues such as same-sex divorce are more straightforward than they were in the past. However, we understand that any divorce can be a complicated and distressing matter. When it’s happening to you, you need a compassionate, experienced lawyer on your side.


At Vella & King, Attorneys at Law, you will find a legal team that excels in client service. With family law attorneys who have more than 40 years of combined experience, we are able to provide knowledgeable legal counsel to same-sex individuals and families, and we can assist our clients through difficult times such as separation and divorce. 


Vella & King can manage any same-sex family law need, including:

  • Ending a marriage
  • Determining whether spousal support will be awarded
  • Dividing the couple’s assets and debts
  • Creating and finalizing child custody agreements
  • Requesting or contesting child support orders


We also understand that some couples who are ending a relationship may not have married. In these cases, it is important to work with a lawyer who thoroughly understands this aspect of Alabama family law. You may need a lawyer with extensive experience handling property division and spousal support in these situations.


Additionally, same-sex couples who are divorcing or ending their relationship may have more complex child custody issues such as:

  • Whether the child was adopted by both parents
  • Whether the child is the biological child of one parent
  • Whether reproductive measures like in vitro fertilization or a surrogate were used


No matter how complicated the custody issue, you can rely on our attorneys to approach it with the seriousness and care it deserves.
