There are so many complexities for rainbow families to consider in the family law space:

  • What’s a parental responsibility order?
  • How can your or donors relationship status at the time of conception impact your rights as a parent?
  • Who is the ‘legal parent’?

The team are joined by family law partner Sally Nicholes & clinical psychologist Catherine Boland to explore some of the common rainbow family law issues and questions.

Bec, David and his ‘fictional’ boyfriend Bruce role play how the law can potentially play out if they were to enter a co-parenting arrangement without proper discussions in advance.
