HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF LEGALLY under a Trump administration as an LGBTQI, poly, or nontraditional family
Trump & Pence have promised an attack on LGBTQI rights. We urge you to read the information below and TAKE STEPS NOW to protect yourself, and ask you to share this information via email or social media with communities and individuals who need it. We will keep you informed here and in our monthly newsletter as policies develop and change.
We expect challenges to nonbiological parental status in particular and want to support LGBTQ and poly families in determining whether they should do a second-parent adoption, Will or estate planning, co-parenting agreement, get married or divorced, or do a cohabitation agreement to protect their rights. We can also help evaluate the risks of being out as poly or trans depending on potential discrimination, and can provide referrals internationally if we aren't the people to help. To request a consultation, please contact us.
The general information below does not constitute legal advice. To request legal advice specific to your situation, contact us.
