SAME SEX FAMILIES AND CHILDREN: THE LEGALITIES EXPLAINED An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers This book, which could not have been written twenty or even ten years ago, reflects, as Anthony Hayden QC observes in the Preface, ‘the ever-evolving concept of the family’. We are more careful with our language now’, he observes, especially in the wake of ‘the raft of equality legislation’ which ‘provides a framework for a much fairer society in the future and one in which the options for children are expanded, keeping them at the centre of the legal process.’ Additionally and significantly, both societal changes and scientific research (which have given rise to issues linked with assisted fertility and surrogacy, for example) have evolved a multiplicity of situations in which ‘who are the parents?’ becomes a crucial and problematic question. As is pointed out, ‘couples in a same sex relationship require the assistance of a third person in order to create a child.’ The ‘who-are-your-parents’ question is therefore ‘family specific and fact specific’. From all these developments -- examined in detail in this book -- there has emerged a new and rapidly evolving area of law with which the family lawyer and other concerned professionals need to be familiar. Published by Jordan Publishing’s Family Law imprint, this book clarifies the law as it relates to those either in, or wanting to be in, a same sex relationship and who have, or want to have children. The emphasis is therefore on children and their welfare where the law is at its most complex. A quick glance through the book’s contents will reveal the wide variety legal issues which impact on ‘children and same sex relationships’. To cite only a few examples, the book examines everything from parenthood and parenting (e.g. genetic, biological, or psychological) to same sex adoption, gender recognition and civil partnership, to welfare benefits and the financial and succession issues which may follow a breakdown of a relationship. In particular the changes to the law in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act (HFEA) 2008 are carefully examined. In exploring a wide range of fraught issues which can quite often obscure the legal landscape in this area of law, this carefully footnoted book also provides extensive research resources, including tables of cases, statutes and statutory instruments, plus detailed index. The up-to-date statutory and jurisprudential position in family law pertaining to same sex couples is carefully elucidated, which means the book is extremely useful not merely to legal practitioners but to professionals in local authorities, adoption and benefits agencies and healthcare trusts. The law is stated as at March 2012.
