Today there are more Non-Traditional Families than ever before. Non-Traditional Families include blended families, stepparents, single and divorced parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, and LGBT couples.
Ms. Spirio is an attorney with experience in non-traditional family law, helping couples understand the law and how it impacts those in non-traditional families. Most importantly Ms. Spirio guides her non-traditional family clients on how to legally protect themselves as best as possible to insure the same rights afforded traditional families.
A few examples of issues for non-traditional families to address are:
- protecting the children
- grand parent’s rights
- holding property title
- how the property will pass on to your loved ones upon your death
- structuring home ownership
- ensuring inheritance rights of the surviving partner if the legal owner passes away
Existing domestic relations, marriage and family law haven’t kept pace with the burgeoning needs of non-traditional families. A non-traditional family has to take affirmative steps to ensure legal recognition and protection of their families. We can advise and assist you regarding domestic partnership agreements, legal issues arising from same sex marriages, parenthood issues including second parent adoptions, alternative insemination, known donor agreements and co-parenting agreements. We also work with clients in domestic partnership breakups using a variety of techniques such as negotiation, mediation and collaborative law.
