LGBTQ+ Family Law
At Birkett Long we have one of the largest teams of family law solicitors in Essex. The legal experts in our team practice exclusively in the field of family law.
When it comes to LGBTQ+ families, the law continues to develop. Whilst the laws of England and Wales apply equally to all, there are some niche areas of family law that impact LGBTQ+ families far more than they do other families.
LGBTQ+ couples and families have many of the same legal issues to deal with as heterosexual couples, but there are various matters unique to same-sex relationships. Getting legal advice from solicitors with experience of dealing with LGBTQ+ family law ensures you will receive the best support for your family and that nothing is overlooked.
We can help you with all aspects of the law relating to you and your family, such as:
- Civil partnerships
- Pre-Civil Partnership Agreements
- Getting married
- Pre-Nuptial Agreements
- Post-Nuptial Agreements
- Gender Reassignment Certificates
- Law relating to children
- Parental rights
- Parental responsibility
- Divorce in same sex marriages and dissolution of civil partnerships
- Financial remedy proceedings
- Cohabitee disputes
- Domestic abuse
