LGBTQ Advocates

The Law Offices of Jennifer J. Riley are strong allies of the LGBTQ+ community.  Within all areas of family law, LGBTQ+ individuals are in need of representation, and we are here to provide it.

When marriage planning, any couple may decide to enter into a Prenuptial Agreement to create a healthy and positive future for their marriage.  For couples not planning to marry, a Cohabitation Agreement can help you manage the day-to-day family obligations, and help set boundaries for your financial and other well-being.

A marriage often means a combined family, and many couples may want to consider Step-Parent Adoption.  In addition to adoption, custody schedules for a child in a newly combined family may need to be changed. 

In planning for the future, all individuals should consider estate planning, including ensuring that you have a Power of Attorney for your financial and healthcare needs.   

The most common LGBTQ+ matters that the Court addresses on a daily basis are Petitions addressing Name Changes.
