LGTBQ Issues

Georgia legally recognizes the rights of LGBTQ Georgians to marry, to parent, and to adopt.  However, these rights may be negatively impacted by the marriage status of the parties, by the unfair legal definition of sex and gender, and the evolving case law around custody and visitation.

  • Second parent adoptions between married women
  • Name changes for trans* individuals
  • Custody and visitation, especially ensuring the rights of parents raising kids that are not legally and/or biologically their own.
