Attorney Nancy O'Neill has substantial experience representing LGBTQ clients in court, mediating LGBTQ domestic partner dissolutions, and in providing LGBTQ individuals with legal advice on a variety of issues. She is knowledgeable about the unique issues LGBTQ individuals and their families may face in custody matters, domestic partnership dissolution and dissolution of marriage.
Over the last thirty years I have provided representation of numerous gay or lesbian spouses in an opposite-sex divorce. An early life decision to marry an opposite-sex partner can create challenges for those whose coming-out journey does not mature until later. Arizona law imposes particular difficulty in terminating same-sex marriages, and I have experience in advising and representing same-sex spouses seeking to dissolve their marriage. I can assist you in preparing financial and child custody agreements between domestic partners, as well as in terminating domestic partnerships through mediation. I can also assist in drafting a Power of Attorney that provides the non-biological parent of a child(ren) with the ability to take certain important actions on behalf of the child(ren).
If you would my assistance with any of these issues, please call (520) 882-2193 to make an appointment.
