We have had an article published in leading legal journal Family Law about the case of T v B recently heard in the High Court. The case involved a lesbian couple in dispute following a split, and the court found that the non birth mother was not a ‘parent’ under English law and so not financially responsible for her child. Our article reviews the case and its implications for same sex parenting.

Gay rights charity Stonewall has published the first ever Guide for Gay Dads, giving legal and practical help for gay men wanting to start a family. We are proud to have contributed to the guide as expert advisers and authors of the legal sections on surrogacy, donor conception and co-parenting for gay men. We work with many same sex parents (and prospective parents), and know that Stonewall’s guide will be an invaluable resource for gay couples exploring their options for starting a family.
