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 parents.

Recent changes in same-sex family law mean that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender 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 biological parents.

At Nelsons, our specialist family law solicitors across the East Midlands advise on the full range of legal issues relating to same-sex parenting, including:

For same-sex families considering donor insemination, surrogacy and adoption we can offer draft agreements to regulate such arrangements and protect you in the future.
