The LGBT community has a significant number of complex legal issues that may or may not take place in other family formation or divorce matters because of the rapid pace of changing laws, legal uncertainties and inconsistencies between State laws. Nevada made a significant shift in these rights in October of 2009 when Nevada Domestic Partnerships became effective. Kimberly Surratt, the principal of Surratt Law Practice, testified at the Nevada Legislature in support of domestic partnerships and is proud of her role in assisting the passage of the bill. Now, of course, marriage equality as passed. However, that has not proven to fix all of the parentage inequality in the United States.

Surratt Law Practice has become nationally and internationally recognized for their efforts in the LGBT community. When dealing with these complex issues you want an attorney that is nationally and internationally connected. One that has a network of LGBT attorneys at their fingertips to assist you in these complex matters.
