Dissolving a Civil Partnership

A Civil Partnership can only be ended on the death of one party, dissolution or annulment. A breakdown of a Civil Partnership may give rise to various issues including financial claims and arrangements for children.

A Civil Partnership is a legal status for couples who register their relationship, giving them similar rights and responsibilities to married couples. The implications for tax matters, state benefits and inheritance are far reaching.

Our specialist Civil Partnership solicitors can:

  • Help you understand the process involved in dissolving a civil partnership
  • Offer guidance on how to separate your finances like you would in a divorce, Including properties, investments, businesses, pensions and trusts. Our Civil Partnership Solicitors can also advise on how inherited assets will be treated.
