NON-TRADITIONAL FAMILIES in DENVER, CO

COMMON LAW MARRIAGES, SAME-SEX DIVORCES, AND DISSOLUTION OF CIVIL UNIONS

If you are in a non-traditional family, our attorneys understand and are trained in the complexities associated with the ever-changing laws that impact your relationship.  While this area of the law is still evolving, you may have rights with respect to property division, spousal support, parenting time, and child support.  At GEM Family Law, we remain at the forefront of the conversation surrounding the development of this area of law and are skilled in representing common law and same-sex couples at end of their relationships or in preparing for cohabitation or marriage.

NON-TRADITIONAL PARENTING TIME ISSUES

Parenting-related family law matters are not limited to those involving biological mothers and fathers.  Often, parental relationships are created by residing and caring for a child, even when you are not biologically related to them. You may be a grandparent seeking visitation with your grandchildren, a stepparent desirous of having visitation rights with your stepchildren, a foster or adoptive parent, or a LGBTQ parent seeking rights to spend time with your child or an important child who has been a significant part of your life. 

At GEM Family Law, we have extensive experience with non-traditional families and understand and support the importance of your role in your family unit.  We are committed to working with you to ensure that your family is protected. 

Whether you are a special respondent in a Dependency & Neglect case, a family member who has provided care for a child and desires to intervene in a divorce or child custody case, a party who would like to initiate a case for visitation rights, or a parent defending against a claim for visitation rights, we are here to guide you through the process in a thoughtful and strategic way.

  • Same-sex divorces and parenting time
  • Transgender divorces and parenting time
  • Common Law Divorces
  • Grandparent Visitation
