Modern Families

At Mundays we recognise that the family unit has evolved.

The “modern family” may face different challenges which are unique and require specialist expertise. We can advise on issues such as parentage, the legal implications of donor conception and surrogacy arrangements.

Children of same sex couples may face additional challenges whilst their parents are together or if there is a separation. Being aware of these issues equips us to deal with our clients sensitively and with an appreciation of their concerns. We deal with disputes relating to children with confidence and compassion.

We are experienced in acting for those in same sex relationships. We are able to provide comprehensive and practical advice to those going through a separation or wishing to explore the option of a dissolution or divorce. We are experienced in dealing with issues that may arise relating to financial arrangements.

We are also able to advise those beginning their journey together as a couple or starting a family on the legal implications of their chosen family structure. We will ensure the relevant documents and agreements are drafted with care so as to provide the best protection if there is a future breakdown or any Court proceedings.

We understand that there may be particular issues surrounding the breakdown of a same sex relationship which will need to be managed with particular sensitivity and understanding.

We can help with:

  • Civil Partnerships and same sex marriages
  • Arrangements for children
  • Financial arrangements
  • Cohabitation agreements and disputes
  • Parentage
  • Surrogacy
  • Pre and post marital agreements
  • Mediation

Having started her own “modern family”, Rachel Lemon’s broad experience in family law is complimented by her personal experience and a keen interest and experience in this complex area.
