Nontraditional Families

Even if your family does not resemble the families of "Leave It To Beaver" or "The Brady Bunch," you know you are a family if you live fully interdependent lives. Like any other family, you may have legitimate concerns that will need to be addressed through appropriate legal remedies such as powers of attorney.

Although a family group may not conform to society's norm or ideal, the needs of individuals, couples and children in such households are very real. Whether you are concerned about grandparents' rights or establishing paternity, The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, can help.
