Dissolution of Civil Unions

Connecticut Dissolution of Civil Unions Lawyer

The end of a relationship is stressful. No matter how long you have been together, the dissolution of a partnership involves a serious change to your lifestyle, and the end of what you have come to know as routine.

Recently, the state of Connecticut began to recognize civil unions, allowing many gay and lesbian couples to form binding partnerships. While this is indeed a wonderful step forward for the state and the GLBT community, it is inevitable that some of these partnerships will end and people will need the legal guidance of an experienced family law lawyer.

At Sheila K. Rosenstein, Attorney at Law , we understand that the dissolution of a civil union, or the end of a partnership between a same-sex couple, is no different from the end of a straight relationship. We have the knowledge and ability to help clients with any domestic partner dispute. With over 25 years of experience in family law, we have come to understand that every relationship has different circumstances and that each client has different goals.

It is the job of a family law lawyer to help clients move to the next stage of their lives. We are committed to building personal relationships with our clients as we help them reach their long-term and short-term goals.

A Welcoming, Family Environment for Gay and Lesbian Couples

Unfortunately, even with the recent acceptance of civil unions in Connecticut, same-sex couples may be unaware of their rights within their partnership. Or, they may feel that a lawyer is unwelcoming, or even inexperienced regarding the legal and emotional issues involved with the dissolution of a same-sex relationship.

Our firm takes pride in welcoming clients in same-sex partnerships into our firm. We believe that there is no difference between the end of a gay or lesbian partnership and that of a straight partnership. We have personal involvement with same-sex couples and same-sex unions, and we can help you understand your rights and your options.
