Same-Sex Property Division
People in same-sex relationships face the same types of family law issues as traditional married couples. However, the laws that apply to separating gay and lesbian couples can be much different than those that apply to married partners. At The Law Offices of W. Robert Montgomery in Lakewood, Colorado, our lawyers have assisted many same-sex couples during the separation and property division process.
If you have a cohabitation agreement, we will help you proceed with dividing your property based on the agreement, ensuring that your interests are protected and that the division of property is fair and equal. If you do not have a cohabitation agreement, property division must be handled through a partition action governed by civil remedies, rather than family law remedies. This path can be complex and requires representation by a knowledgeable lawyer with experience handling same-sex property division.
