Civil Partnerships

Civil PartnershipsThe Civil Partnership Act 2004 came into operation on 5 December 2005 and enabled a same-sex couple to register as civil partners.

A civil partnership has allowed couples who make this commitment to each other to have the same legal footing as married couples.

We provide clients who have entered into a civil partnership with specialist advice on how to apply to the Court to dissolve the civil partnership or apply for a separation order. The dissolution process closely mirrors that of the divorce process.

We advise clients on the facts upon which they can rely to apply for dissolution of a civil partnership and we guide them through the process and advise on the ancillary financial matters.

We have a wealth of experience in advising clients on the breakdown of these relationships and again do so in the most cost effective way.
