Civil Partnerships Solicitors, London. International.
Civil partnerships were introduced in 2005 and protect you and your partner financially without the traditional aspects of marriage. A civil partnership is a legal relationship entered into by a couple which is registered. If you need advice on registering a civil partnership, our expert family lawyers can assist you with taking the next step.
Alternatively, the process of ending a civil partnership is known as dissolution. Before you can apply to dissolve one you must have been in a civil partnership for a year. Similar to marriage, in a civil partnership couples benefit from the same rights in terms of tax benefits, inheritance and pensions. Ending a civil partnership will provide the same entitlement as a spouse who is getting a divorce.
If you wish to dissolve your civil partnership following a breakdown of the relationship, our specialist team can guide you through the process and protect your interests.
