Serving LGBTQ Families In All Family Law Matters

Although same-sex couples are supposed to have the same rights under the law as straight couples, they can still face unique challenges regarding family law. It is crucial that you have allies who can protect your rights, explain your options and guide you through the complex legal system.

At Newsome O'Donnell, LLC, we represent members of the New Jersey LGBTQ community for all issues related to:

  • Same-sex divorce
  • Domestic partnerships
  • Civil unions
  • Adoption for LGBTQ couples
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Assisted reproduction
  • Child custody and visitation

Our managing partner attorneys, Lynn Newsome and Ed O’Donnell, are board-certified matrimonial attorneys. With their extensive knowledge, they understand how best to serve same-sex couples in the field of family law. When you need lawyers you can trust as LGBTQ allies, you can turn to us.

Helping Unmarried LGBTQ Couples Uphold Their Rights

Many LGBTQ couples choose to remain in a committed relationship without marrying. Others choose a domestic partnership or civil union. Although New Jersey recognizes these arrangements, federal law does not – which adds additional complications to the mix. Fortunately, we understand how the law affects your individual relationship.

If you and your partner are splitting up and were never married, we can help you address concerns such as asset division and child custody. We are prepared to represent you at trial before a judge to help make sure that the court honors your rights.
