Civil Partnerships

Civil Partnerships allow same sex couples to enter a legal relationship with each other which has some similarities to a marriage.

They were introduced in England in 2005 and give couples similar legal rights as married couples in a number of areas, including pensions, tax and the ability to gain parental responsibility for a child.

Our experienced family solicitors can help you with any area relating to civil partnerships, including:

  • Pre partnership agreements – similar to prenuptialfree consultation agreements for married couples. These enable you to set out how property will be divided in the event of a relationship breakdown.
  • Dissolution of a civil partnership – we can help you through the Court process of ending a civil partnership by one of the following two methods.
    • Separation orders – when a partnership has lasted less than 12 months.
    • Dissolution orders – similar in some ways to a divorce in that it cannot be made within the first 12 months of a civil partnership.
