Modern Family Matters

Families have never been more varied. From blended families to same-sex families and single-parent families, family structures are increasingly diverse. While this is a welcome development, many family structures can create a range of challenging legal issues to contend with.


Blended Families

Blended families are formed when you and a partner create a new family unit and one or both of you have children from a previous relationship. In some instances, this can spark complications, such as contact between a child and stepparent or stepsiblings or the need for a stepparent to acquire parental responsibility for a stepchild. We have the experience and expertise to help and support you to resolve any blended family issues.


LGBTQ+ Families, Surrogacy & Donor Conception

We can guide and support same sex couples, trans parents and heterosexual couples through the options for creating a family, including surrogacy and donor conception. The laws around both options are complex and we would advise seeking professional advice as early as possible in the process, so you have a full appreciation of the legal implications of any decisions you make.


Co-Parenting Agreements

While many individuals now decide to conceive a child and co-parent together, disputes can arise. Given this, it is wise to enter into a Co-Parenting Agreement from the outset, so the individuals involved both have the same expectations.
