Some of these topics include legal recognition of post-transition name and sex, parental rights, relationship recognition and protections, divorce and relationship dissolution, custody disputes involving transgender children, legal protections for transgender youth, intimate partner violence, and estate planning and elder law. This book serves as a resource for those practicing in this emerging and constantly changing area of law.
