Nontraditional Family Law

At Courtney, Clark & Mejias, P.C., we take pride in representing nontraditional families in Belleville and throughout Southern Illinois. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to guide lesbian, gay and transgender couples and families through any family law challenge they may face. We can assist with divorce, property division, child parental responsibility and children's issues, spousal maintenance, adoption, paternity actions and more.

A Changing Legal Landscape

Same-sex marriage is now legal in Illinois. LGBT couples may face many challenges, some involving children from previous marriages, as well as the possibility of divorce. It is important to choose a lawyer who is well-versed in current law and up to date on the changing legal landscape as it applies to families with lesbian, gay and transgender members. You can find that lawyer at our law firm, and you can be confident that we will approach your case with care and a commitment to positive results.

We take the approach that no two families and no two cases are the same, and that approach is particularly important in nontraditional family law cases. These cases often involve unique situations that require not only an in-depth knowledge of the law, but a commitment to finding creative approaches to achieve our clients' goals.
