LGBTIQ+ 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.
