Why Do I Need an LGBTQ+ Rights Lawyer?

In recent years, the legal rights of LGBTQ+ individuals in the U.S. have notably expanded. The 2015 federal legalization of gay marriage was a keynote moment for many members of the LGBTQ+ community, affording LGBTQ+ couples who wished to marry the ability to do so (and the associated benefits).

However, recent LGBTQ+ litigation has also been fraught with controversy. In 2018, the Trump Administration banned transgender individuals from serving in the military, a decision the Pentagon recently reversed in March of 2021.

Unfortunately, many LGBTQ+ individuals still face unexpected challenges or pushback when navigating a wide range of legal disputes, including family law cases. Some common concerns for members of the LGBTQ+ community include:

  • Difficulty with international adoptions. During international adoptions, prospective adoptive parents may need to abide by the laws of other countries governing adoption - some of which may bar LGBTQ+ parents from adopting.
  • Improper property division arrangements. The recent legalization of gay marriage can cause some friction in property division cases where the parties lived together and shared property for a substantial amount of time, but only recently married. This is especially true in community property states such as Nevada.
  • Disagreements over child custody disputes. In some LGBTQ+ relationships, only one spouse is the biological father of a shared child. This can sometimes result in skewed rulings from courts that favor biological parents in custody disputes or difficulty determining an appropriate custody arrangement.

Having a lawyer by your side who understands how courts interpret LGBTQ+ rights can be invaluable. At Roberts Stoffel Family Law Group, our Las Vegas LGBTQ+ rights attorneys understand how to support LGBTQ+ clients in Clark County courts. We'll ensure your rights and interests remain protected throughout your case.
