Â· Housing concerns
Â· Military and veterans issues
Â· Family law
Â· School matters
Â· Health care
Â· Personal safety concerns
Â· Keeping and securing employment
Â· Immigration problems
Â· Criminal imprisonment disputes
Transgender Persons and the Law, 2nd Edition includes the latest regulations and policy statements (including the looming Executive Order by President Obama on LGBT discrimination by federal contractors) regarding transgenderism in addition to new cases that have been brought before the courts since the publication of the first edition of this book in summer 2013. As a bonus, the book includes a link to an online database that features a complete set of legal forms for all fifty states and the District of Columbia for name changes and for those jurisdictions that allow it, changes to birth certificates.
