Non-Traditional Family Law and GLBT Issues

 Providing Creative Family Law Solutions for Georgia Families

Non-traditional families and members of the GLBT community often face unique legal struggles in Georgia. Although your family is not recognized by the state, there are steps you can take to protect the people you love.

We recognize that your family is not afforded the same rights and protections as traditional families in Georgia; however, we are committed to meeting all your legal needs. Call 770-723-7211 or contact us online to schedule an appointment with a compassionate, experienced family law attorney.

Addressing All of Your Family Law Concerns

Every family is different, and no matter how your family is structured, we will do everything we can to meet your legal goals. Relying on many years of family law experience, we will help you understand all of your options and take the approach that is best for you and your loved ones.

We have a decade of experience guiding GLBT clients through all kinds of family law issues such as:

  • Domestic partnership agreements — When your relationship is not legally recognized, it is critically important to protect your interests. Many of our GLBT clients think of their domestic partnership agreements as being similar to prenuptial agreements.
  • Adoption — Certain Georgia counties view second parent adoptions favorably. We will position your situation to help you achieve your goal of adopting a child.
  • Estate planning — Although estate planning is important for every adult, GLBT and non-traditional families face unique hurdles. We will take a comprehensive approach to your estate planning to help you plan for your future. Drafting wills, powers of attorney and basic trusts, we can make sure that your loved ones and your assets will be protected.
  • Child custody and visitation — We will work with you to protect your children. As skilled negotiators, we are often able to achieve solutions that are in everyone’s best interests.
  • Child support issues — Non-traditional families face many of the same child support concerns that other families encounter. We will work with you to reach an arrangement that reflects your situation.
