Your LGBTQIA Family Law Advocates

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and face a wide range of issues. LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, allies) individuals may find themselves facing even more challenges, as the laws are always changing. Whether you are building a family or going your separate ways, it is important to have an experienced, insightful attorney on your side.

We work tirelessly to get to the root of your case and seek a resolution in the most efficient, effective manner. Led by highly skilled and compassionate Knoxville-based attorney Lisa Collins Werner, there is no bias or prejudice here at our firm. We treat your family like our family.

Cases We Confidently Handle

  • Divorce: Though marriage is now constitutionally legal for everyone in the country, regardless of their gender, divorce can often be a complicated issue for LGBTQIA individuals. We can shed light on how a divorce may proceed, and how spousal support (alimony), property division, child support, and child custody that result from divorce are handled.
  • Issues involving children: Custody and support are complicated issues, especially when it comes to LGBTQIA parents and parentage.
  • Adoption: We walk clients through the process of adopting a child, and help to smooth the transition and legal issues that may arise with same-sex parent adoptions, second parent adoptions or traditional adoptions.

We also handle other issues, including prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, legal separation, paternity, parents' rights and restraining orders, among many others. Whatever you are facing, we can face it together.
