Family Lawyer for Same-Sex Partners

In Ontario, people in same-sex relationships have full equality rights. They can legally enter into the same agreements that heterosexual couples use, including marriage contracts and cohabitation agreements.

Everyone’s family is unique. Same-sex partners may also be entitled to spousal support upon dissolution of a relationship. This area can be particularly challenging if two partners were never legally married. At The Law Office of Thomas J. MacLennan, we also act as strong advocates for gay and lesbian people who wish to pursue property claims after a period of cohabitation.

At The Law Office of Thomas J. MacLennan, we bring a sense of calm and rationality to legal issues. We approach every case with a strong focus on client attention, responsiveness and respect.
