Important Announcement:Yates Family Law, PC has been monitoring and continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 virus. Our firm has taken and will continue to take all proactive measures recommended to prevent the spread of the virus within our work environment. Our priority is the health and safety of our employees, clients, and vendors. In light of Governor Brown’s Executive Order 20-12 (“Stay at Home”), effective March 23, 2020, Yates Family Law’s employees and attorneys will work remotely. Currently scheduled in-office meetings will be rescheduled as telephone calls, or face-to-face meetings using the Zoom platform. We appreciate your patience and flexibility in this dynamic time. Please be sure to utilize e-mail as the primary means of contacting your lawyer or paralegal team. Phone access may be limited due to remote work arrangements, but e-mails will be checked routinely by attorneys and staff. Our office will remain open, although working remotely, and we are still accepting new clients at this time.

LGBTQ Family Law

Fortunately, Oregon, and the rest of the nation now recognize same-sex marriage. It would be fantastic if the Supreme Court decisions in Windsor, Obergefell, and Pavin made LGBTQ family law simple. LGBTQ family law, like most family law, is not simple.

At Yates Family Law, we work with all families. We understand LGBTQ families often have additional hurtles both legal and emotional that are not common in other family law cases. Fortunately, our experienced team is ready to address all aspects of LGBTQ family law cases.

LGBTQ families often require additional legal protections. We can assist with second parent adoptions, prenuptial agreements, and domestic partnership agreements.

Legal protections are relatively new to LGBTQ families, though LGBTQ families are not new. If you are facing a dissolution, custody dispute, modification, or any other LGBTQ family law issue we are here to assist you.

In our office your family will not be seen as a “non-traditional family”. You will simply be seen as another person in need of our advice and counsel and we would be happy to support you in your legal needs. You can contact our firm here for more information or to set up a consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
