Alternative Family Attorneys in Montgomery County

We’re here with the answers you need.

Complex legalities often come with the formation of the alternative family. Custody, visitation, child support, and constitutional issues regarding a legal parent’s right to care and control of their child are among the most common. The laws and cases regarding these legal issues vary tremendously throughout the United States.

In any situation where a nontraditional family is formed, it’s imperative that the potential legal consequences are considered and planned for in the event that issues arise in the future. Collaborative law and other forms of alternative dispute resolution can be particularly helpful because there are no divorce laws governing the relationship.

With more than 60 years of combined experience in handling an array of divorce and family law issues, Andalman & Flynn’s skilled attorneys have a deep understanding of how the courts approach these matters for same-sex parents and unmarried couples.

When you need a strong legal advocate, turn to Andalman & Flynn. Our experienced family law counselors can design a legal strategy that’s effective for you. Please contact us today by calling 301-563-6685 to schedule a consultation.

We offer services in the Gaithersburg, Rockville, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Olney, and Potomac areas.

I only wish that I had contacted her

Client Testimonial – Thoughtful Legal Guidance

“I am writing to tell you how very pleased I am with the care and attention that I received from the law firm of Andalman and Flynn. From the outset, I was impressed by the organization of the office, and the thoughtful legal guidance that I received in the areas of family law and landlord-tenant issues. My attorney, Peter Casciano, met with me when I was a walk-in client in distress. He immediately directed me to several public agencies of which I had need, and advised me in the process of becoming a client of the firm. His advice and understanding, on such short notice, was much needed and greatly
