Same-Sex Marriage in MA

Counsel From a Salem, MA Divorce Attorney

Are you in a same-sex marriage and looking to get a divorce? Since same-sex marriage is legal in the state of Massachusetts, same-sex couples hold the same rights regarding divorce as heterosexual couples. Since same-sex marriage and divorce is still a rather new terrain, the process of divorce can be more complicated and often confusing.

That is why it is crucial to obtain legal representation from a capable Salem, MA divorce attorney who has years of experience handling all family law matters. I, Attorney Kevin Prendergast, have more than 15 years of legal experience and am well-versed in marriage laws for same-sex couples. I aim to protect the rights and interests of my clients, ensuring they walk away from the divorce with favorable settlements.
