Modern Family Issues
The definition of family has changed dramatically in the past 20 years, and it continues to change today — from what constitutes a family in the eyes of the law to who has the legal right to marry, the notion of a “traditional” family is no longer viable. Unfortunately, the law often lags behind the new and innovative ways families are created today.
At Bull & Reinhardt, PLLC, our forward-thinking family law attorneys stay on the cutting edge of new developments in family law and blaze their own trail when the laws haven’t caught up to current practices. We do what’s best for our clients and their families — no matter how the family was formed or who makes up the family — and take whatever steps are necessary to do what’s in their best interest.
Blazing New Trails, One Family At A Time
Even if, at first blush, the law doesn’t appear to be on your side in a family law matter, we may be able to help. Not only do we stay current on the laws that are on the books, but we also stay abreast of new, unique ways to challenge existing laws if they are antiquated and not supportive of your needs.
Our lawyers love taking on new and complex cases, asserting innovative legal theories and strategy, and even when there aren’t obvious or clear solutions, we will listen to your concerns, take a personal interest in your case, thoroughly investigate the existing law and trends, and dive deep to find a solution that works for you. Some of the modern family issues we may be able to help you with include:
- Same-sex marriage and divorce
- Adoption by same-sex couples
- Assisted reproduction and surrogacy
- Donor agreements
- Reproductive rights
- Equality for gay and lesbian families
- The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)
