Event description

Description

This presentation will explore changing social attitudes and recent trends in same-sex divorce from countries where marriage equality has existed for some time. The presenter will then share the findings of his qualitative research undertaken with separated same- sex parents from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and regional Victoria.

The findings unpack their experiences of separation both before and after legal changes recognising female non-biological parents, and will discuss parents’ experiences of shared care over two and sometimes three households.

The presenter will introduce us to guild-parented families, those who create their family with more than two parents and their subsequent unique experiences of separation and shared parenting. The findings will also uncover same-sex parents’ experiences and perceptions of separation services and service providers, including legal professionals, family relationship centres, and mediation and counselling services.

The presenter for this seminar is Dr Luke Gahan an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at La Trobe University and a Research Fellow at the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI).
