Same sex relationships

At bbl family law, we have the knowledge,experience and skills to deal with same sex relationship breakdown

These days the basic law about relationships is the same for same sex couples; we may be married, or in a civil partnership, or simply live together.

If the relationship ends, we can help deal with the legal aspects, and as mediators we can help you agree what should happen. Please see our pages on children and financial matters which deal with the fallout from a divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership. The laws for civil partnerships and marriage are largely identical.

There may also be issues around parenting and legal parenthood and surrogacy. We can help with those.
