Welcome to the website of Barbara E. Katz, P.C. This law firm was established to meet the legal needs of families through the various stages of life. Our practice emphasizes the needs of a diverse client base, including both traditional and non-traditional families, including single parents, and lesbian and gay families.
Our practice areas, as indicated by the menu to the left, concentrate on the creation of families through adoption (third party, relative and second parent or step parent adoptions, re-adoptions, and adoptions from foster care) and through assisted reproductive technology (or "ART") using egg &/or sperm donors, traditional surrogates or gestational carriers. We also assist clients in their wills and estate planning needs, including the creation of living or testamentary trusts for the benefit of minor children. We handle name changes for individuals, couples and children who seek a change of name to fit their familial or gender identity. We represent clients in need of a legal divorce or in the dissolution of their domestic partnership, including issues involving custody, parenting schedules and child support. Finally, we assist clients through the probate process.
Please feel free to explore the website and to contact us with any questions or to set up an appointment.
