Private Courts Inc. provides a variety of services to the LGBT community, including family mediation, document assistance, personal and political advocacy.
We have a deep understanding of the law (or lack thereof ) and our mediation services are geared to provide a unique protocol delivered from our depth of understanding.
Our work includes relationship mediation, divorce, parenting, custody as well as LGBT advocacy work.
Being a marginalized community with little and sometimes no rights can create an imperative call for the mediation of the issues.
Having the courts decide matters that are personal to your situation will most often work against an equitable solution for both parties, as Courts create a win/lose scenario;
whereas mediation provides a forum to circumvent law or the lack thereof, to create a win/win scenario.
This is critical where children are involved and also very important for fairness where parties have high assets, that are ot protected by community property laws, for lack of ability to marry, in parity with heterosexual couples:
We help you with:
- Determining a fair time from when to “consider” your cohabitation as if married weighed against the law
- Establishing transition plans for moves
- Custody and parenting plans
- Marriage/ relationship continuation agreements
- and much more….
