Family law for same-sex couples

At George Ide all our family law services are available for same-sex couples, whether you are in a civil partnership, a same-sex marriage or you have been cohabiting with your partner.

Same-sex marriages and civil partnerships

We understand that relationship breakdown and family fracture is emotional for all concerned, no matter what your situation might be. Our sensitive, approachable and experienced family law professionals will do everything possible to help you through this stressful time and their expert advice and support will guide you through the necessary legal processes to achieve your best possible outcome with the minimum of fuss.

Cohabiting partners

We can advise and help with pre-nups and post-nups or, if you are not planning to marry or enter a civil partnership but would like to formalise your living-together arrangements, we can help you draw up a legal cohabitation agreement to lay firm foundations for a long and happy life together.

But if your live-in relationship is foundering, we are also on your side to help you find a mutually-beneficial conclusion.

And if there are children involved?

Our expert family team specialises in matters concerning children. Our expertise and support will help identify the best way forward for you and your children, and work towards a solution that is in everyone’s best interests.

Finances and pensions

When it comes to finding a financial settlement that meets your needs, our George Ide colleagues have a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips, so we can call on the best available resources to offer you all-round advice that will help secure your financial future. Looking ahead, our investment team can help you manage your money efficiently, and our wider team can help with everything your new life throws at you, from making a new will to reflect your new circumstances to planning for later life with lasting powers of attorney.
