Civil Partnerships

 

Civil partners have the same rights and responsibilities as those who enter into a heterosexual marriage. Civil Partnerships can only be dissolved by the court.

The grounds for dissolving a Civil Partnership are the same as for divorce except in relation to adultery. If your partner is unfaithful the ground for dissolution may be unreasonable behaviour. No application for dissolution can be made within the first year of the Civil Partnership.

If you are in a Civil Partnership which has broken down you have rights to claim for financial reparation. These are the same as in respect of divorce and therefore please see the section with the heading Property and Financial Matters.

Civil Partnerships and children

Civil partners have the same rights to apply for Orders regarding children as married couples. Please see the area headed Children Issues.

We can arrange pre-civil partnership agreements in much the same way as pre-nuptial agreements.

There are many different things to consider and the process can seem very confusing. If you would like more information on approach then please click on one of the following links:

Collaborative Law, Mediation, Round Table Meetings, Fast Track, Traditional Solicitor Negotiations and Family Arbitration.
