Nontraditional Families

Helping LGBT Families in Family Law Matters

There is not one version of the “perfect family.” Instead, families come in all shapes and sizes. At Porcello Law Offices, we help nontraditional families facing legal issues move forward on the right path.

Located in Salem and Gloucester, our law firm has been providing effective, compassionate legal representation to clients using their combined experience of more than 50 years.

Attorney Jean G. Porcello-Giusto was one of the first same-sex divorce lawyers in Essex County. She understands the unique challenges same-sex couples face during the divorce process and is dedicated to protecting her clients’ financial and parental rights.

Legal Representation For LGBT Families

The laws governing nontraditional families are constantly evolving. It is important to consult with attorneys who understand how current laws impact you and the effects that future changes in the law will have on nontraditional families.

Our attorneys are always up to date on the latest changes in state and federal laws. We keep ourselves well-informed to ensure that we understand the impact that any legal changes will have on our gay, lesbian and transgender clients.

In addition to same-sex couples and other LGBT family units, nontraditional families include grandparents who are raising their grandchildren and other family members raising another family member’s children.

When it comes to our clients’ interests, our attorneys are dedicated and aggressive advocates. We do everything in our power to protect our clients’ financial health and parental rights.

Dedicated Legal Service For Every Family

While many of the legal issues nontraditional families face are similar to those facing traditional families, there are important nuances to consider. The property division process in a divorce may present additional challenges to same-sex couples. In addition, adoption laws and child custody issues may become more complex when gay, lesbian and transgender individuals are involved.

We serve every client with dignity and respect. Our attorneys are sensitive to the societal challenges many of our clients face. We are committed to helping our clients overcome their family law challenges so they can move forward to a brighter future. Call our offices to speak with an attorney.
