On June 26th, when the US Supreme Court struck down the bans on same-sex marriage the era of marriage equality began. The gay, lesbian and transgender community can get married but can also get divorced as well. Matthew Brickman, family and divorce mediator, addressed these new issues that will set legal precedence.

Now that same sex marriage is legal in the United Sites and the cases are starting to come in, Matthew Brickman addressed some of the issues the mediators, attorneys and judges are facing by saying, "Think back about forty years ago when heterosexual couples were divorcing and it became less taboo... as they were getting divorced there was no caselaw, statues, precedents or irregularities. Over the past forty years as rulings have taken place, attorneys can reference these."

Same Sex Marriages are Creating Caselaw:

He went on to explain, "Same sex marriage couples are now where heterosexual couples were forty years ago. There's nothing on the books. They are going to be creating caselaw and normality within the judicial system one case at a time."

Children and Property in Same Sex Marriages:

Matthew Brickman highlighted that the unique situation at the core of a same sex married couple going through a divorce is to define who is entitled to what. Heterosexual couples have a husband and wife but same sex couples only have spouses. Also if there are children are involved, the child is most certainly not born within the marriage.

These are just some of the many issues that professionals in the legal and judicial system are now facing and Matthew Brickman has pledged to help those in need of sorting out their pre-marriage or divorce/dissolution of marriage issues in the state of Florida.
