Non-Traditional Dissolution of Marriage / Partnership

Massachusetts and New Hampshire Family Law Attorney Darlene Daniele and Her Knowledgeable Staff Compassionately Assists Non-Traditional Families with Divorce and Partnership Dissolution.

Ending a marriage or a long-term partnership is difficult even in the best of circumstances. When a married couple decides to end their union, there are a host of concerns that arise out of the split. These same issues come up for non-traditional couples if they decide to separate and divorce.  Just like more traditional husband and wife couples, same-sex or unmarried partners share the concerns of child custody, division of property, and parental rights.  No matter the gender or sexual orientation of the couple, Family Law Attorney Darlene Daniele and her knowledgeable and compassionate staff bring the same compassionate approach to ensuring that her clients receive the care they need to get the results they want.

Since 2004, Massachusetts has recognized the right for same sex couples to marry.  In New Hampshire, that right was recognized in 2010. We at Salem Legal Services gladly welcome clients from non-traditional lifestyles that have chosen to enter into, begin and raise a family, adopt children and/or enter into a surrogacy contract, and end, a non-traditional marriage or partnership.  New Hampshire and Massachusetts Divorce Lawyer Darlene Daniele provides divorce representation to same-sex couples and both establishes and dissolves domestic partnership agreements.  Attorney Daniele recognizes that all couples, regardless of sexual orientation or gender, are equals when it comes to the dissolution of marriage.  Serving Rockingham and the surrounding counties, Family Law Attorney Daniele assists you with your concerns, which may include:

  • tax considerations
  • alimony/spousal support
