Augusta Civil Union Dissolution Lawyer

Evans Same-Sex Partners Attorney

Same-sex couples who are ending their relationship face the same challenges as other couples, from living arrangements to asset division to the support of children. Under Georgia law, however, same-sex partners are not afforded the same protections in civil union dissolution as their heterosexual counterparts, and they can be subject to far more difficulty in the process. For this reason, it is extremely important to hire a lawyer who understands Georgia family law and civil law — and who will fight to protect your legal rights.

At Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, our attorneys are confident, effective advocates for all couples and families. We will work hard to make sure that your rights are protected and that your best interests are upheld through the process of same-sex divorce.
