Anthony & FamilyAdoption, Surrogacy, Estate Planning & More

TimeForFamilies.com is a labor of love. I have had the pleasure of serving the legal needs of the LGBT community for fifteen years, currently as Head of the Family and Estates division and senior associate at the law firm of Chianese & Reilly Law, PC.  My goal with this site is to provide lesbian and gay couples and individuals with the vital information necessary to make informed choices in the process of creating and protecting their own families.

Adoption, second or step parent adoption, surrogacy, artificial insemination, intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization… Each path to parenthood has specific considerations, obstacles and rewards. As you read through the personal stories on TimeForFamilies.com, I hope that you find the answers that you are looking for!
