Divorce is a difficult matter for everyone involved. Our divorce attorneys focus on guiding you through the process and seek a resolution that will give you confidence and closure.

In addition, our attorneys recognize that many families do not have the rights and protection that divorce laws provide to married people. We provide advice and guidance with civil union matters and advise unmarried couples.

True Client Advocacy

While we feel that an amicable resolution is often in a client's best interest, we tailor our representation based upon your needs and goals. We have the experience and trial skills to litigate cases in divorce court when necessary. 

Civil Unions

Gay and lesbian couples should receive the same rights and protections that heterosexual couples have, including the rights afforded through marriage.

Civil union laws enable same sex couples to establish specific rights and obligations to parties in the event of incapacitation, death, or separation. The attorneys at Gans & Gans are skilled at helping gay and lesbian couples with civil union legal agreements and the dissolution of civil unions.

Civil Union Agreements: Our lawyers are experienced in helping gay and lesbian couples negotiate, prepare, and draft a civil union agreement. We work with the couple to ensure all elements are addressed. This civil union agreement will then give civil partners many rights, such as:
  • Authority over healthcare decisions when the civil partner has become incapacitated 
  • Ability to provide or utilize family health insurance
  • Ability to file state tax returns jointly  
  • Civil partner rights in estate administration 
Dissolution of Civil Unions: Couples who enter domestic partnership or civil union agreements encounter the same legal concerns if the relationship terminates. We provide strong representation to help clients with concerns that arise if the couple separates, including child custody, property division, and alimony.

Alimony/Spousal Support

Alimony (also called spousal support) is the legal obligation of a person to provide financial support to their spouse after a divorce. If you are going through a divorce, it is important to have a professional in your corner who understands family law, and has your best interests in mind. Oftentimes, emotions can run high during the whole divorce process, especially during alimony negotiations. Having an alimony lawyer with you who is impartial to the situation will help you get the outcome that is most beneficial to you, and make the entire process easier.
