Children and Same Sex Families: A legal handbook

Marisa Allman

Jordan Publishing 2012

This portable single volume handbook brings together the up-to-date statutory and jurisprudential position in family law appertaining to same sex couples, with an emphasis on children (where the law is at its most complex). For example, the same family unit can be in a very different legal position depending on when and how the children are conceived, and the status of the relationship between the parents, or between the parent and the child. Children and Same Sex Families: A Legal Handbook is an invaluable guide to this rapidly evolving area of law written for all family lawyers and related professionals (eg charities; local authorities; healthcare trusts; adoption agencies; benefits agencies) who provide advice and support to same sex families.
