Family Attorney in Charlotte, North Carolina

We have witnessed the world change quite a bit in the last decade alone. Although the law has generally evolved to become more inclusive of same sex and LGBT families, some challenges remain within the legal system that pose a great risk to families when it comes to property division cases, alimony and divorce, child custody and support, domestic violence orders, and adoption.

That’s because although same-sex marriage was legalized in North Carolina in 2014, and across all 50 states in 2015, you may be exposed to greater risk if your marriage or common law relationship predates legalization. Blame it on bureaucracy if you must, but there is no doubt that LGBT families still encounter more legal issues in the system than heterosexual families.

As experienced LGBT family attorneys, we have the experience you need to navigate these challenges and we will always negotiate in your interest for the best possible outcome. We are here every step of the way to educate and guide you through any legal process to ensure that you feel supported. Our team is here to help.
