Attorneys Help Same-Sex and Unmarried Couples in Tinley Park and Surrounding Areas

At Anderson and 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

The Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act, which went into effect in 2011, established the rights of same-sex and opposite-sex couples to engage in civil unions. In 2015, the United States Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry.

Our lawyers can aid you by explaining your rights and helping 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, married and unmarried same-sex couples, grandparents raising grandchildren, and any other type of family. We can provide legal support and services for the following areas:
