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 individuals and families from both traditional and non-traditional backgrounds, such as single parents, older parents, lesbian and gay couples, and transgendered individuals.
Our practice areas concentrate on the creation of families through adoption (third party, relative and second parent or stepparent 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 counsel and assist clients in completing prenuptial or partnership agreements. We also assist clients in their wills and estate planning needs, including the creation of living or testamentary trusts for the benefit of one’s spouse or partner, and 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 single parents who need to establish paternity to obtain child support. And 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.
