Minneapolis Attorney Eric Prindle
In Minnesota and nationwide, nontraditional families are well on their way to becoming the majority. Yet they still face many challenges in — among other things — living their lives governed by bodies of probate, tax, and family law that were created under the assumption that a family consists of a married man and woman and their children.
The term “nontraditional families” is most often used to refer to same-sex couples who cannot get married legally in Minnesota and couples in long-term relationships who have chosen not to get married. However, it can also be used to refer to single-parent households, blended families, and households in which grandparents have taken responsibility for raising their grandchildren.
I am committed to helping nontraditional families take advantage of the legal opportunities that exist to obtain security and peace of mind. While my practice in this area primarily involves estate planning, I also assist clients with the drafting of domestic partnership agreements and other types of cohabitation agreements, which involves elements of family law and contract law.
Every family is unique, and this is especially true for nontraditional families. My role is to gain an understanding of your specific situation and advise you on the steps you can take to achieve your goals. To discuss how I can assist you, please contact me to schedule a consultation.
