Orland Park Nontraditional Family Lawyers

At Anderson & Associates, P.C., we know that there are many different types of families. Traditional families still have rights protected by law, but nontraditional families must often take legal action to protect their rights. Our firm assists all family structures in establishing their rights and making sure the correct plans are in place before proceeding with legal action.

Legal Assistance for Nontraditional Families in Illinois

Since June 2011, the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act established the rights of same-sex and opposite-sex couples to engage in civil unions. Those joined by a civil union have the same rights as married couples in Illinois. Federal rights, on the other hand, deny civil union partnerships because of the Defense of Marriage Act. Our lawyers can aid you by explaining your rights and help you with any legal actions you need to take to protect your family.

We not only work with civil union partnerships, but we also assist other nontraditional families like unmarried heterosexual couples, unmarried same-sex couples, grandparents raising grandchildren, and any other type of family. We can provide legal support and services for the following areas:

Our attorneys can help you take the right legal actions to separate your life from your ex-partner's in the easiest way possible. If children are involved, our experienced lawyers will protect their best interests while working to satisfy the intentions of our clients.
