Lesbians and the Law: A Guidebook for Australian Families
Lesbians and the Law is an invaluable resource for families. Written for the layperson in plain accessible language, the book will take you by the hand through important areas of the law, including relationship recognition, donor rights, separation, parenting, adoption, employment discrimination, wills, superannuation and domestic violence. In addition, the book includes inspirational real life stories about lesbians in Australia who have created families in different ways.
As the first book of its kind in Australia, Lesbians and the Law will help readers understand the laws as they relate to same-sex parenting.
“When my partner and I had a child, there were simply no resources to help us understand the laws related to our situation. This is the book I wish I had when I was making those decisions early on in my family planning. I want to help other lesbians move through that complicated territory with knowledge to empower their decisions.”
Nicole Evans, author, lawyer and lesbian mother.
