August 2017: Legal talk: Plan for your future

While Singapore does not allow or recognise same-sex marriage, what legal avenues can you and your partner utilise to safeguard certain aspects of your and your partner's lives? How can two parties buy a HDB flat or other property? If your partner has children or if you want to have/ adopt children, what are the laws around that?

It is as important as ever for LGBT individuals to know how and why the existing community law applies to their families, and be empowered with the information to protect themselves under the law.

Join us at the next Women's Nite where lawyers Indulekshmi Rajeswari and Deryne Sim, the editor and contributor of Legal Guidebook for LGBT Couples & Families in Singapore respectively, will give a talk and answer your questions.

The first 10 attendees will receive a copy of the guide. The e-book can be downloaded for free here: https://www.singaporelgbtlaw.com/home/guidebook-e-book/, do read the guide prior to attending in case you've any clarifications.
