Free legal consultations for polyfamilies, with Trump and Pence on the way
Back to more serious stuff. Diana Adams — longtime polyamory activist, poly-community organizer, and head of a law firm that specializes in legal arrangements for nontraditional families — has announced this offer:
My law firm is now offering free phone consultations to poly families all over the US, to LGBTQ families in New York, and to Americans in Germany about how to protect their family rights under the new administration.
We expect challenges to nonbiological parental status in particular, and want to support LGBTQ and poly families in determining whether they should do a second-parent adoption, will or estate planning, co-parenting agreement, get married or divorced, or do a cohabitation agreement to protect their rights. We can also help evaluate the risks of being out as poly or trans depending on potential discrimination, and can provide referrals internationally if we aren't the people to help. We'll be sending out a 'Know Your Rights' article in our newsletter tomorrow, and thereafter be doing a monthly newsletter keeping poly, LGBTQ, and nontraditional families up to date on what they should know about legal issues that may affect their families. To sign up for the mailing list or request a consultation, we're at www.DianaAdamsLaw.net
I'm angry, disappointed and worried about my community and my clients, but at least this is one way I can direct some of that energy. We are here for you, your community, and your poly family. I'm part of an army of LGBTQ lawyers, and we are relentlessly dedicated to safeguarding the civil rights of all Americans.

UPDATE: Here is Diana's post-election newsletter as promised, with a list of advice for poly families and platonic co-parents, transgendered people, same-sex couples, and others in nontraditional relationships: How to protect yourself legally under a Trump administration as an LGBTQI, poly, or nontraditional family.
