Caring Legal Guidance For LGBT Couples And Families

The legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide puts all Georgia couples on equal legal footing when it comes to marriage and divorce. Unfortunately, equality in law does not always result in true equality in practice, and many LGBT couples may still face legal complications, especially when parental rights come into question.

At Hecht Family Law, we are dedicated to helping all parents, couples and families through legal matters, ensuring that their rights are protected every step of the way.

Some of the types of legal issues we can assist with include:

  • Adoption: If you choose to adopt, we can guide you through the process for legally doing so.
  • Parental rights: Many LGBT parents need to take additional measures to ensure that they are legally recognized as the parents of their children, either through a second parent adoption or another action. We can make sure that you are legally recognized as the parent of your children.
  • Divorce and separation: Before marriage was an option, many same-sex couples formed domestic partnerships or used alternative means to formalize their relationship. Whether you married or formed a domestic partnership, we can help you through the divorce or dissolution process, including division of property and child custody agreements.
  • Parenting plans for nontraditional families: Whether your children have two dads or two moms and a dad, we can help you find a parenting plan that works for your family and protects your rights and relationship with your children.
