As the proud LGBTQ+ owner of his firm, Daniel offers valuable representation to all couples, including those in same-sex marriages.

Daniel and his team are in a unique position in that they thoroughly understand the nuances and complexities that can arise when you transition from a civil union to a marriage, and they can help you maneuver and address how these matters could impact your divorce.

Common Challenges That Can Come With Gray Divorce

Here are a few common issues that you might run into, followed by how our team can help you address them:

  • Untangling a lifetime of assets: Chances are that you have bank accounts, a home, cars, investment and retirement accounts, and, potentially, a pension. The longer you’re together, the more difficult it can be to identify what’s “yours, mine and ours.” Our team can help you thoroughly dig through everything you have to make those determinations and promote your best interests amid property division negotiations. They can also help you determine whether family heirlooms are subject to division.
  • Determining who gets the home: This can be one of the most emotional and challenging issues to address in a gray divorce. Chances are that you’ve both lived in your family home for a long time and have invested considerable time and effort into making your house a home. We can work with you to determine the most appropriate option. Our legal team can advise you on whether it makes sense to stay or move out of the home, and they can help you advocate for your fair share of equity in the property.
  • Social Security complications: Sometimes, you or your spouse may still be eligible for some of the other’s Social Security benefits. This can depend on a lot of factors. We can help you determine if you are eligible to receive a percentage of your spouse’s Social Security benefits and protect your best interests if your spouse attempts to get your share of them.
