The Civil Partnership Act 2004 which came into force in December 2005 confers rights on same-sex couples to obtain legal recognition of their relationship by registering a Civil Partnership. As such their rights are virtually the same as those for married couples.
Dissolution of a Civil Partnership is similar to a divorce and the Court is able to make Orders in relation to children of the relationship and financial provision. Our team have experience in dealing with Dissolution cases and we are also able to advise on Pre-Partnership Agreements.
Our specialist team will help to guide you through the process and explain the options available as well as timescales and potential costs.
