Gay & LGBT Family Law Lawyers

Couples enter a relationship with longevity in mind. This includes gay and lesbian couples. With legal rights finally being granted to the LGBT community, marriage is now a real possibility, with many families living happily throughout the United States. However, there are times when that initial bliss turns to irreconcilable differences and divorce appears to be inevitable. There are some tricky legal issues involving gay and lesbian couples, and that is why you will want to consult with a law firm that specializes in LGBT family law issues.

Matters Involving Family Law

There are actually quite a few different areas of family law that affect the LGBT community. Our firm is uniquely qualified to handle any of them. There are times when child custody issues enter into the mix. This might involve questions of child visitation, who maintains the parental rights over the children, and what, if any, legal rights the grandparents have after the divorce is finalized. These are all serious matters that affect the well being of a child, so the judicial system often becomes involved at various levels.

In incidences involving spousal or child abuse, a family law attorney should be consulted as well. This is particularly true if you are the one that has been accused of such a crime. You will want legal representation on your side in order to protect your rights. If there are children involved, your rights as the parent could be placed into jeopardy. These are issues similar to that which all married couples face, so the LGBT community is certainly not unique in this regard. At the same time, you will want to have a lawyer who specializes in gay and lesbian family law due to the social stigma that still revolves around those of the sexual minority.

Issues of Divorce

While one should never enter a marriage thinking about divorce, this eventuality does happen to even the best intentioned of gay and lesbian couples. Family law will deal with matters related to divorce, and you will want to have a lawyer working with you to protect your financial and other interests. Even in cases where the break up is most amicable, it is helpful to have a family law attorney look through the settlement agreement just to make sure that everything is in order. There are some divorces that are rather complex, and this may require going to court in order to reach a judicially mandated settlement. In order to ensure that it is fair to all parties involved, you will want to have a family law attorney there representing you.

Retaining a LGBT Family Law Lawyer to Assist You

Dealing with issues related to family law can be rather emotional. You may encounter feelings of extreme anxiety, frustration, and a range of other emotions. It is important to remain calm and to approach the issues with the resolve that is necessary. This is why you will want an LGBT family law lawyer working on your case from the beginning.
