Other Family Law Matters
Family law issues that are becoming more and more common include:

  • Grandparents’ Rights—Some states allow grandparents to seek custody and/or visitation with a minor grandchild. In most instances, to receive custody, the grandparent must show that both biological parents are unfit to take care of the minor child. A grandparent who has been awarded custody of a minor child may also pursue child support payments.
  • Same Sex Family Law Issues—As more and more states legalize same sex marriages, couples in same-sex unions increasingly face many of the same legal challenges as parties in a “traditional” marriage, including questions about separation and divorce, custody of children, visitation, and division of property.
  • Name Changes—Legally changing your name can sometimes be a complicated process. An attorney can make certain that you’ve met all the requirements, and completed and filed all necessary documentation.
