GLAD publishes groundbreaking Transgender Family Law resource

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) this week announced the publication of Transgender Family Law: A Guide to Effective Advocacy, the first book to comprehensively address legal issues facing Transgender people in the family law context and provide practitioners the tools to effectively represent Transgender clients.

'Featuring chapters by attorneys with expertise in both family law and transgender legal advocacy, the book was edited by Jennifer L. Levi, director of GLAD's Transgender Rights Project, and Elizabeth E. Monnin-Browder, a litigation associate in the Boston office of Ropes & Gray and a former GLAD attorney,' said Carisa Cunningham, a spokesperson for GLAD. 'Transgender Family Law: A Guide to Effective Advocacy will be available in bound and electronic versions in May.'

'Some of the most heartbreaking stories I have heard in my career as an LGBT legal advocate involve Transgender people in family courts,' said Levi, a nationally recognized expert on Transgender legal issues. 'The rights of Transgender people - as parents, spouses, and simply as human beings - are often trammeled in family court because of pervasive bias and misunderstanding. Transgender Family Law is a road map for Transgender individuals and their attorneys to navigate the family court system in this evolving area of law.'

'This book tackles a cutting-edge area of family law and we're thrilled to have contributions from some of this country's most well-respected experts in this field,' said Monnin-Browder. 'Transgender Family Law details the unique needs and vulnerabilities of Transgender people in the family law context. I hope Transgender people will read and share it with their attorneys as they plan a family, navigate the dissolution of a relationship or a custody dispute, or simply seek to protect their rights and those of their children.'

The chapters address a broad range of topics, including Culturally Competent Representation; Recognition of Name and Sex; Relationship Recognition and Protections; Protecting Parental Rights; Relationship Dissolution; Parental Rights after Relationship Dissolution; Custody Disputes Involving Transgender Children; Protections for Transgender Youth; Intimate Partner Violence; and Estate Planning and Elder Law.
