Our nationally recognised Family Law team can provide specialist advice to issues affecting the LGBT community. We can provide help and assistance in dissolution of civil partnerships, parentage, gender recognition and application for gender recognition certificates.

We are also able to assist with disputes surrounding children, adoption, and the law on surrogacy.

We are familiar with the Civil Partnership Act (2004), Gender Recognition Act (2004) and the recently enforced Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act (2013) and can provide you with specialist legal advice in these areas of law.

We will provide you with clear advice on how to approach issues you may have come across and will agree the best course of action with you.

Recognised as one of the leading Family Law teams in the UK, we approach matters with sensitivity and look to help you with a practical way forward.
