UNDERSTANDING THE LAW
The Indiana LGBT community faces a number of challenges that other communities potentially don't have to deal with: there is prejudice, in and out of court, and there are still many legal conundrums and gray areas.
As of 2015 same-sex marriages are recognized in Indiana and across the country. Many of the issues and questions facing LGBT people are resolved with the new ability to get married, yet this does not resolve questions of what is right for your family in particular. Many legal questions still remain.
Should you get married? Will marriage protect your family for the future in retirement and death? How will marriage affect our children? Does marriage equality mean parentage equality?
With years of experience assisting the lesbian and gay (LGBT) community in Indianapolis and throughout central Indiana, I am versed in the unique legal needs of same-sex couples, and help them with important documentation for creating and protecting their new families, such as donor insemination agreements, co-parenting agreements, guardianships and adoption proceedings.
Indianapolis LGBT Law attorney Barbara J. Baird can lead you through these various legal processes with the ease and confidence that only decades of experience can offer. She has been active in protecting the rights of and representing the LGBT community for over 25 years, and has navigated clients through a wide variety of LGBT cases.
