Non-Traditional Families Lawyer Doylestown, PA
The definition of family has been redefined, even though the law does not recognize all of the nontraditional arrangements of the modern family. Examples of nontraditional families include grandparents raising grandchildren, same-sex partnerships, children born of surrogates or with the help of medical reproductive assistance, and children adopted nationally and internationally. The experienced attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford are dedicated to helping all families and ensuring that children, parents, and grandparents get all the protections the law can afford them.
Skilled Assistance with the Issues Faced by Nontraditional Families in Lansdale, PA
We serve a wide range of nontraditional families who are struggling with separation, child custody, child support, and other family law issues. Whether you are part of a gay and lesbian couple, a nonmarried heterosexual couple or have another type of family arrangement, we offer you skill and experience in a wide range of family law matters, including:
- Child support
- Alimony/spousal support
- Property settlements
- Modification and enforcement of orders
- Protection from abuse (PFA)
- Name change
- Estate Planning
Since the law does not recognize gay and lesbian marriage in Pennsylvania, committed partners in those relationships do not have the same rights in regard to inheritance, access to health care records and other issues. However, this does not mean that you cannot establish those rights through accepted legal means.
No matter what type of nontraditional family you belong to, our attorneys can help you achieve estate planning goals that give you the same rights as any other family. Whether you wish to leave assets to your partner in a will or trust, or wish to grant him or her decision-making authority over your health care or finances should you become incapacitated, we can help you with all of the necessary legal details.
