Civil Partnerships Specialist civil partnership and dissolution advice

Civil partnerships, for both heterosexual and same-sex couples, carry similar rights and responsibilities to marriage and if a civil partnership breaks down it can be dissolved using a similar process to divorce.

We can advise you on civil partnership dissolution and the relevant financial implications. Our expert family lawyers can advise you of your options and provide the guidance that you need. We will ensure that your rights and interests are protected and that you know what to expect from the legal process of dissolution.

Our team are friendly and approachable and will do all they can to reduce the stress and anxiety involved. We are easily contactable and will be happy to talk to you as needed to discuss any issues that have arisen, update you as to progress and answer any questions you may have.

We take a non-confrontational approach wherever necessary and will always attempt to resolve matters on your behalf without recourse to the courts. This can make the process of dissolution quicker and more cost-effective, which may in turn help prevent any further deterioration in your relationship.

Civil partnership dissolution

The grounds for obtaining a dissolution of a civil partnership are similar to those for divorce. You will need to show an irretrievable breakdown of your relationship, which can be evidenced by one of the following:

  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • Two years separation, if you are both agreeable to the dissolution
  • Five years separation if one of you does not agree to the dissolution

As well as dealing with the dissolution, we can also advise you in respect of arrangements for your children and financial issues, which will ideally be agreed upon before the formal dissolution takes place.
