Legal advice for same sex families

The law is at last moving forward and acknowledging the reality of modern family life, and the vital role played by same sex couples looking after children.

Recent changes in same sex family law mean that gay and lesbian couples in an enduring relationship can now be recognised as legal parents of children.

This provides greater stability for same sex families throughout England and Wales, who can now embark on the journey to parenthood knowing that their legal status as parents can be legally secure even if they are not the biological parent.
