We serve all families regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or origin.  We are proud to represent lesbian, gay male, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual (LGBTQIA) families on the path to building their families.  We also represent polyamorous individuals and families, platonic co-parents and other non traditional families in creating a family plan that works for them.

While the law has made great leaps forward in recent years both nationally and in California, LGBT families still must protect their parental rights through parentage orders and adoptions in order be secure that their rights are not subject to scrutiny or are not protected outside of California.  Adoptions and parentage orders are the best way to protect your legal rights, and are worth your peace of mind.

Same sex spouses can use the simplified and stream lined process created through the Modern Family Act in California, if the child was born during the marriage.  Call us for more information on how you can use this process to secure your parental rights.

Three parent adoptions have also opened up the possibilities for children with multiple parents to secure their parental rights under certain circumstances. See more about third parent adoptions here.
