I had to be out on the West Coast for a conference and decided to extend my trip and go to the Grand Canyon – magnificent, by the way. ...read more

Why Mediation & Collaborative Divorce Processes Are Better for the LGBTQ Community

By: Concetta G. Spirio, Esq.

Tuesday, December 1, 2020
Those in the LGBTQ community have always faced difficulty protecting themselves, frequently being denied rights usually taken for granted by the general public. Before the legalization of same-sex marriages, same-sex couples and their families had to cobble together a patchwork of legal documentation to obtain some of the legal protections afforded to opposite-sex couples able to legally marry.
