As it is in the society at large, separation and divorce are commonplace in the LGBTQI community. There are always difficulties to resolve when a couple separates, and, of course, when children are involved, this presents further considerations. Furthermore, it is important that the professionals involved understand the issues unique to our community..

We will work to ensure that you reach agreements that are appropriate and effective for you and your family and, at the same time, that you all maintain control over your decision-making.
