Protecting the rights of everyone
You’re in a committed relationship but were never married. Do you know what rights you have if the relationship ends? Who will retain physical custody of your children? How will your property be divided? At Andalman & Flynn, we provide expert advocacy and counsel to those involved in nontraditional or alternative family arrangements. Andalman & Flynn has a rich history of representing the LGBTQ community, even before same-sex marriages became valid in Maryland and DC. If you’re struggling with same-sex separation challenges, you can rely on our experienced and supportive family law attorneys.
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 his or her 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 non-traditional 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 to schedule a consultation.
“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… appreciated! It gave me a sense of security at a very difficult time. I was deeply impressed by Mr. Casciano’s on-going ability to listen to and understand my point of view. At all times, he provided clear information about various legal options that were open to me. I felt that I was well informed, and that I was not pressured to proceed in a particular direction. Rather, I felt encouraged to take time, to think, and to consider solutions that were most suitable to me and to my situation. It is assumed that an attorney will be knowledgeable in his field. Even so, I was impressed by Mr. Casciano’s easy grasp of any situation that I relayed to him. His recommendations were always sensible, and his skill at making legal options clear and understandable is outstanding! I felt, at all times, that Mr. Casciano was empathetic to my concerns and firm in his determination to protect my interests. Based on my experience, I would recommend Andalman and Flynn to anyone who needs a top-notch attorney. Andalman and Flynn is my law firm of choice!” Very Truly, M. Peckham

“I was recommended to Ms Vann from a friend of mine. I couldn’t be happier with the result that I got. I was dealing with custody and financial support issues with the mother of my twin boys and trying in vain to do the right thing by myself. Working with Ms Vann relieved so much of the stress that I was going through. It is about six months since my case was closed and things are still going really well. I only wish that I had contacted her sooner!”
