Protecting Families: Standards for LGBT Families

Gay& Lesbian Advocates & Defenders has published its guide, Protecting Families:
Standards for LGBT Families
which is a must-read for all lesbian and gay couples. The guide underscores the importance of obtaining legal recognition for your family and working with a knowledgeable attorney to make sure that you have the protections you need.

Adoption by the non-biological parent is emphasized, both for the protection of the child and the second parent. I have posted numerous times in this space on adoption procedures and related issues.  Click here to be directed to the co-parent/step-parent adoption section of this blog.

I hear from gay and lesbian couples across the country every day and cannot say it enough:  protecting your relationship and your family should be your top priority, not something you put off for another day.  For more information, please visit the lesbian/gay specific section of my website here.
