Our job: Stand up for those who need it most.

Even in 2017, LGBTQ rights are far from certain.

At Amy M. Levine & Associates, we proudly support the LGBTQ community in solving the full range of family law issues, including divorce, adoption, child support, and all other related matters.

– Marriage and Divorce

As Ohio and West Virginia adopt the Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states, the LGBTQ community needs dedicated advocates, just as it always has. Our attorneys have a long record of success helping individuals and their families adapt to the changing legal landscape.

– Adoption

Same-sex couples often face unique challenges (in addition to the usual hurdles) when seeking to adopt a child. We use a variety of tools, including adoption and co-custody agreements, to give legal permanence to the relationships of same-sex parents and their children.

– Name Changes

If you wish to take your partner’s name or change the name of an adopted child, you must file a petition in your county probate court. We have helped many families secure name changes in Franklin County and elsewhere in Ohio.

– Child Support

Financial support is essential to provide children with what they need. If you are a noncustodial parent, we can help you resolve child support matters using Ohio’s child support guidelines to ensure your support obligations are fair.

– Parenting Time and Co-Custody

In many cases, child custody laws have not caught up with the reality of raising a child as a nontraditional couple. We help same-sex clients develop fair co-custody arrangements through legal agreements and court.

– Estate Planning

Whether you are married or part of a domestic partnership, it is important to take steps to ensure your loved ones are taken care of in the event of your incapacity or death. Our lawyers can help you develop the documents you need.
