Protecting the Rights of the LGBT Community

Couples within the LGBT community are faced with many unique challenges when family law issues arise. Those challenges often require creative legal solutions.

At the law firm of Anne E. Raduns, PA, we have the experience to come up with family law solutions that work for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in same-sex relationships. No matter what challenge you're faced with, you can be confident in our ability to resolve it.

Family Law and the LGBT Community

Same-sex marriage became legal in Florida on January 6, 2015. This new legislature abolished the original law which banned same-sex marriage and was enacted in 1977. After a district court ruling declared that the state’s same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional, actions were taken to legalize the recognition of these unions.

Although divorce laws for same-sex couples were somewhat unclear in the days following the new marriage legislature, the tides have now turned in the favor of these individuals. Same-sex couples are allowed to divorce from each other in Florida.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your marriage, the decision to divorce can be a difficult one. Our firm wants to ensure that your rights are protected throughout this tenuous time and offer the compassionate support you need. We would be honored to represent you amidst your divorce.

Same-Sex Couples and Children

Child custody and child support issues are not uncommon within the LGBT community. If you are engaged with such a dispute from a previous relationship, our law firm can assist in resolving it.

The law applies to everyone and it should be applied fairly, regardless of sexual orientation. We are here to see that you get the fair treatment that you deserve under the law.

Domestic Violence Within the LGBT Community

Abuse is as much a possibility for same-sex couples as it is for straight couples. When issues of domestic violence arise in the LGBT community, our law firm is prepared to address them. We have a long history of addressing these issues.
