LGBTQ Family Law Attorneys

Wisselman & Associates – A Team You Can Trust

Every New Yorker deserves the same rights and protections under the law, and that includes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Members of the LGBTQ community deal with many of the same issues traditional families face when it comes to navigating divorce, child custody and other family matters, but they may encounter a variety of unique challenges that others won’t have to face.

At Wisselman & Associates, we are committed to helping LGBTQ couples achieve their short- and long-term goals for their family. Our Long Island family law attorneys have experience helping New Yorkers navigate the rapidly shifting legal climate that encompasses LGBTQ family law. In fact, attorney Amanda Green is active in participating on the Nassau County Bar Association LGBTQ Committee, which is involved in transgender and same-sex legal issues.

We can help you and your family with the following:

  • Same sex marriage and divorce
  • Equitable distribution
  • Spousal support
  • Legal separation
  • Child custody and support
  • Mediation
  • Religious divorce
  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Adoption
  • Sperm donor agreements
  • Domestic violence
  • Name changes
  • Medical insurance family coverage

Why You Need a LGBTQ Family Lawyer

The constantly changing laws and political climate of the state and country oftentimes leave the LGBTQ community in a state of confusion, with many questions unanswered. When combined with the stress of family law and going to court, it’s easy for a LGBTQ family to feel uncertain. Our experienced team at Wisselman & Associates can help you navigate the confusing waters of LGBTQ family law. The first step in retaining a lawyer is to schedule an initial complimentary consultation, during which we can provide an overall, preliminary evaluation of your case. A potential client in need of family law representation also has the opportunity to put forth specific questions for an attorney during this time.
