At Newburyport Family Law, we recognize that there are many different variations of what constitutes a “family.” While members of the LGBTQ+ community have many of the same legal rights and obligations as more traditional families, they often face needs and challenges not encountered by other populations. We are sensitive to these needs and challenges from legal, emotional, cultural and practical perspectives.
We will ensure that you are aware of the different options available to you and that you have the knowledge and tools available to make informed decisions about what is best for your family going forward. It is important to us that you and your family enjoy the advantages and protections to which you are entitled under both federal and state law. We are prepared to address the concerns of every client regardless of sexual orientation and the issues faced by all separating and divorcing families, including child custody, child support, property division and health insurance.
At Newburyport Family Law. We recognize that not every solution works for every family. We take the time to analyze the manner in which the many different societal factors that influence the family’s functioning, such as school, work, community and peer groups, influence your rights within the legal system and then make recommendations that fit with your family.
From the outset, we will ensure that we have a firm grasp on your unique family situation, that we can either assist you and your spouse or partner in mediating your case or provide you with a sense of confidence that we will vigorously advocate on your behalf and that once your case is concluded, you can look back knowing that you made the very best decisions for your family.
