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 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.

- 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.

One area of unique interest to same-sex couples is the use of reproductive technologies to grow their families.
