Family and Divorce » Same sex families and LGBT rights

The law that protects and promotes the rights of LGBT+ individuals and families is a complicated and rapidly evolving area of law.

Whether or not you are setting up a new family, suffering the difficulties of a break-up, or just looking to see what rights and protections you have under in law, our Family and Divorce team of highly skilled and experienced lawyers can advise you on your legal position.

We recognise the special nature of legal questions with an LGBT+ element and will sensitively guide you through the law. We are able to assist with matters concerning same-sex marriage and divorce, formation and dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation matters, gender reassignment and fertilisation and embryology issues.

If you and your partner are in a relationship, a number of issues will affect your finances and practical arrangements, both during the relationship and if the relationship breaks down. Taking steps to protect your position in relation to a family home, children, finances and inheritance rights can be vital.

Our Family and Divorce team of highly skilled and experienced lawyers can advise you on these and related issues to protect your position.
