The Project

LGBT people forming or dissolving a family often do not have the resources to advocate for their rights in issues of domestic violence, custody, public benefits and property distribution. The LGBT family law project will empower individuals and protect the legal rights of Los Angeles' low-income LGBT families by providing direct legal services and by participating in outreach and education to inform people of their legal rights and resources.
