Navigating Same-Sex Family Law Issues

Court decisions in recent years have changed the landscape of LGBTQ family law, culminating in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which made it illegal for states to ban same-sex marriages. Complex legal issues remain, however, for those in the LGBTQ community facing divorce, child custody disputes and other family law issues.

At Parsons Law, PA in Asheville, we understand that family is universal – as is the emotional impact of legal issues that affect the family. And, we are prepared to help. Our lawyers are skillful negotiators as well as committed litigators who will protect your interests in court when necessary.

Full-Service Family Law Representation

We represent people in same-sex relationships in a broad range of family law issues, including:

  • Divorce: Including the division of marital property.
  • Spousal support: Protecting your financial future, whether you are seeking spousal support or being asked to pay.
  • Child custody and support: Protecting your parental rights and the best interests of your child.
  • Adoptions: Navigating the adoption process, including addressing biases against LGBTQ parents that may linger within the system.

In every case we handle, we provide our clients with close, personal attention. We understand what is at stake and will handle your critical legal matters with great care.

Reproductive Technologies
