Let $\pi \colon X \to T$ be a deformation of a normal Gorenstein surface singularity over the complex number field $\mathbb{C} $. We assume that $T$ is a neighborhood of the origin of $\mathbb{C} $. Then we prove that $\pi$ admits a simultaneous log-canonical model if and only if an invariant $-P_t\cdot P_t$ of each fiber $X_t$ is constant.
