Non Traditional Couples

With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the highest court in the land has made history by broadening the legal and cultural understanding of marriage. By doing this, they have extended official legal validation to “non-traditional” couples and families.  Claire Sanderson Hanna wholeheartedly applauds and supports this great societal shift.  We also recognize that new marriage definitions may be followed by new divorce definitions, among other legal concerns.


The following resources are only the beginning of what will be a large body of resources discussing the legal ramifications of non-traditional families. As families continue to shift and change, the law rightfully changes to accommodate the reality of daily life. That is the great strength of family law—it is ultimately about making people’s lives better through the law. We hope that the resources we offer on this topic continue to grow as families continue to form in all kinds of shapes and insightful legal minds consider this subject.
