From 29th March 2014 same sex couples will begin to have the same entitlement to be married as a heterosexual couple. Although gay couples have been able to enter into a Civil Partnership since 2004 this change will now provide complete equality for all couples. Prior to this change some couples had decided to marry abroad in a country which already recognised same sex marriages. Thankfully those marriages will now be recognised in England and Wales.

Here at Crosby & Woods we welcome and embrace this long awaited equality achieving change as we know that many people in the UK, and especially in the very diverse City of Brighton & Hove, will now be afforded proper recognition for their relationships.

We are able to advise on the legal implications facing same sex couples following such changes and should you wish to discuss your legal position please contact one of our Family Law specialists on 01273 734600.
