Same-Sex Relationships & Divorce in Rhode Island
Representing LGBT Marital Issues
Rhode Island adopted same sex marriage several years ago, before it was made legal throughout the country. As a result, same sex couples now face legal issues that apply to other married couples, including divorce. However, the decision to obtain a divorce can be one of the most difficult that a couple makes.
When considering a divorce, it is important that you know your rights and options. At McIntyre Tate LLP, our legal team has more than 150 years of combined experience handling family law issues and other legal matters in Rhode Island.
