What should I do if I am considering separating from my same-sex spouse?
In Florida we do not have legal separation. The procedure for divorce is the same as for a heterosexual marriage. You may be able to get support outside of a divorce case by filing an action for it, or actually proceed with the divorce case itself. If you are contemplating a separation from your spouse then I would recommend that you contact an attorney so you can talk about the different rights and obligations you may have during the divorce proceeding or what you should do and what you are responsible for if you just separate from him or her.
