LGBT Solicitors

The family law team at Slater Heelis are experts in advising all families and individuals on legal matters, from same-sex family disputes and financial settlements to co-habiting agreements and arrangements for children.

After a long period of sustained inequality, LGBT couples now have the same rights to marriage, divorce, arrangements for children, and financial settlements as heterosexual couples.

Despite this, many in the LGBT community are understandably concerned as to how the law will affect their particular situation, bearing in mind that no two families are ever alike.

We have been supporting the legal needs of the LGBT communities in Greater Manchester and Cheshire for many years.

So, whether you’re facing a specific legal issue or simply wish to see what your options are, we’re always on hand to talk through the challenges you’re facing.
