AND - what's a 'baby pre nup'? Well, it's the agreement that more and more people are drawing up with the sperm donor of their babies. We talk to Nicole Evans, a Sydney lawyer who specialises in this area, to discuss what you DEFINITELY need to agree on before you embark on parenting with someone who is not your partner.
Many lesbian couples choose a friend to donate sperm in order to have a family, unaware of how this might complicate their own family dynamic later down the track. Learn about the legalities with Nicole Evans, lawyer and author of Lesbians and the Law: A Guidebook for Australian Families

A senior family law practitioner, Nicole Evans, says she's not surprised by a High Court ruling today which has clarified the rights of a man who fathered a child with a lesbian friend, by way of artificial insemination.
"In one conversation, I try to explain to them why I can't get married to the woman I love. In the second, I announce to them that there is going to be a wedding in the family."

Nicole Evans discusses the law as it relates to lesbians and their families in Lesbians on the Loose Magazine (LOTL).
