Gender identity and Gender recognition

What is the service?

Under the Gender Recognition Act 2004 it is possible to apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate which will reflect the recognised gender. For a person whose birth was registered in the UK, a person with a gender recognition certificate will be provided with a new birth certificate in their recognised gender.

At Cartridges Law we know this can be a challenging and difficult process, and one in need of reform, for example to allow people to self-declare their own gender identity, as became possible in Ireland in 2015.

Bridget Garrood, partner, is a specialist in this area of work. She also sits on the committee of the Law Society’s LGBT+ Division and will be very actively involved in the forthcoming Gender Recognition Act Consultation.

How is the service delivered?

Transitioning towards recognition of your gender identity may have implications in other areas of your life. We help people through this process, giving expert advice, particularly in relation to protection of confidentiality of your trans history; and we can advise too on your new pension rights in your recognised gender.

Who delivers the service?

Cartridges Law Partner Bridget Garrood has considerable experience in acting for Trans people both in Family Law matters and in obtaining a Gender Recognition Certificate. She has close links with the West of England Specialist Gender Identity Clinic in Exeter, which is a centre of excellence for the provision of advice and treatment for gender dysphoria and other gender identity concerns.
