Same Sex Family Law

LGBTIQ+ Family Law – Bodekers Family Lawyers & Mediators

We have been supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community for over 15 years. We have acted for and supported many couples in same-sex family law matters. Further, we have included lobbying in State Parliament and supported LGBTI campaigns.

From working in the community we are aware of the challenges that same-sex couples and members of the LGBTI community face in family law matters.

We are committed to the belief that sexual orientation should not affect a person’s rights. We can advise you about your legal rights and encourage and assist you to pursue those rights.

LGBTIQ+ Family Law – Our experience

Our Legal Practitioner Director Shannon Bodeker has an active interest in following amendments to legislation regarding the legal rights of LGBTIQ+ couples. Shannon has followed this area of family law since being admitted to practice in 1998. She undertook study towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Promotion at Curtin University and completed units in sexology. Further, she wrote a course on and lectured in “Sexology and The Law” at Curtin University.

Shannon further studied legal and equality issues surrounding family law and LGBTIQ+ couples in her Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at Murdoch University.

Through this work she developed a natural affiliation with the LGBTIQ+ community and a passion for promoting the legal rights of LGBTIQ+ people.

We aim to ensure that your family law matter is resolved as quickly, amicably and cost-effectively as practicable. We endeavour to use mediation and interest-based negotiation so that you can resolve your legal problems, rather than a Family Court judge.
