same-sex divorce

Following the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, 576 U.S. 644 (2015), there is no real difference in the divorce process for same-sex couples and opposite-sex couples. But same-sex couples may encounter some additional complications in the divorce process regarding issues such as child custody if, for example, one of the same-sex spouses was the biological mother and the biological father did not agree in writing to terminate his parental rights, and later seeks custody of the child.
