LGBTQ FAMILY LAW
Protecting the Rights of All New Jersey Families
In today’s society, families take on all shapes and sizes. At Arndt & Sutak, we strive to perfect our legal services to help the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in issues like securing parental rights and adoption so they can enjoy the same benefits as heterosexual couples.
On June 26, 2015 the United States Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is a constitutional right, making it legal across all fifty states. This was a huge milestone in the gay and lesbian community and changed the way same-sex couples were viewed in New Jersey.
Your Family Is Our Priority
At Arndt & Sutak Law, we respect and appreciate all families and look to legally help our clients protect their legal rights. We stay current on the law and keep clients up to date on court decisions and actions that may affect their circumstances and case. From name change documents to agreements about your living arrangements, our staff can help you and your partner put all the legal protections in place.
In the event that you need to file for a divorce from your partner, let us help you through that troubled time by protecting your children and assets, and caring for your emotional health just as we would for any other client.
Our firm can work with you and your partner on many legal issues concerning your relationship:

Just like any heterosexual couple, same-sex couples may have to deal with issues of domestic violence. If you and/or your children are being abused, please immediately seek safety and then call our office so we can have the law protect you. If you have been accused of domestic violence, we can stand by your side through the process to protect your rights.
