Same Sex Family Law

Barker Evans recognises that families come in all different shapes and sizes. For rainbow families, it is often important that their lawyers understand them and their family structure. We proudly assist LGBTQIA+ families for all their family law needs.

Barker Evans is the only legal partner for Rainbow Families Australia, assisting our community with legal issues relating to the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our Principal Director, Nicole Evans, is the author of Lesbians & the Law, A Guidebook for Australian Families. Nicole is a regular contributor to media outlets, podcasts, and news programs on same-sex parenting, donor rights, surrogacy and other issues specific to same-sex families.

Since marriage equality was introduced in 2017, same-sex couples are now able to be legally married, and divorced, in Australia. The Family Law Act now deals with same-sex couples the same way as heterosexual couples in relation to property and parenting matters and child support.

Barker Evans understands that some rainbow families may have more straightforward arrangements, whilst others may be more complex, involving a third parent, or other significant persons involved. You should ensure you obtain legal advice from a top same-sex lawyer who has a background in same-sex law.
