Atlanta Same-Sex Partnership Attorney

Georgia laws do not legally recognize same-sex marriages, so other legal methods must be used to protect the rights and interests of homosexual couples. As with any relationship, long-term success is greatly aided by careful planning and preparation.

You can turn to the law office of Jody A. Miller, esq. Attorney At Law, to handle every legal concern you have regarding your same-sex partnership. We will take the time to get you know your unique situation in order to custom-tailor a legal plan to meet your individual needs. Depending on your circumstances and current relationship, this may include:

  • Domestic partnership agreements and other general contracts
  • Names on deeds
  • Estate planning documents, including wills, trusts and financial power of attorney
  • Health care directives and health care proxies
  • Naming beneficiaries on life insurance policies
  • Adoptions
  • Guardianships
  • Child custody and other issues in the event of a breakup

Knowledgeable Representation For Same-Sex Adoption

Although adoption by same-sex couples is legal in Georgia, it is up to individual judges to grant your right to do so on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, state laws do not confer legal rights to nonbiological parents. Given the complexities of planning for a family as a same-sex couple, it is vital to have advice and guidance from a knowledgeable attorney.

As your lawyer, Jody Miller, will take the time to fully understand your circumstances and explains the options that are available, including surrogacy and sperm donors. As either one or both partners will need to adopt, she can also help explain what that process will entail and address any questions or concerns you might have. Ms. Miller will then be a strong advocate for you at every step, working to help you achieve your goals with regard to same-sex adoption and parental rights.
