AREAS

NAME AND
GENDER MARKER CHANGE

We offer name change and gender marker change assistance for those who may need those services. If you are looking to change your legal name, driver's license, birth certificate, or other legal documents, we can help you with the forms and information required per your residence county's requirements

ADOPTIONS

For those who are interested in growing their family or creating legal security, we offer adoption filing assistance including second parent and step-parent adoptions. We can also offer assistance to people who need to finalize legal adoption or foster-parent situations.

DIVORCES

If you and your spouse are contemplating divorce, we can assist you with the process. We offer services for couples who are interested in pursuing an uncontested divorce where no children are involved. 

ESTATE PLANNING

Our staff attorneys are experienced in creating estate planning documents in order to protect your future or settle your affairs. These services include wills, advanced directives, powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents. 

 

OUR VISION

The mission of the Magic City legal Center is to provide affirmation through legal advocacy for LGBTQ communities and community members impacted by HIV.

With grant funding awarded by FREE, Birmingham AIDS Outreach (BAO) will expand its legal program to offer affirming legal services for Alabamians who identify as LGBTQ+. Under the guidance of Sydney Duncan, a transgender attorney, BAO’s legal program will offer pro bono legal assistance and clinics designed to address unique circumstances and challenges experienced by LGBQ, transgender, and gender non-conforming Alabamians who face limited or no access to legal services. In addition to legal advocacy, the legal program will offer LGBTQ education and training services across a variety of legal issues through community outreach.
