Civil Partnerships

01926 350031 or 02476 553961

Although same sex couples can now legally marry, some still opt to enter into a civil partnership. The Civil Partnership Act came into force in 2005, ensuring that civil partnerships offer same-sex couples approximately the same obligations and responsibilities as a civil marriage. Civil partners are allowed the same rights in respect of children, property, inheritance tax, social security and pension benefits. There is also a formal process for dissolving partnerships which is similar to divorce.

Our friendly team of experts are able to offer advice on a wide range of civil partnership issues including:

  • Entering into a pre-registration agreement (similar to a pre-nuptial agreement)

  • Terminating a civil partnership

  • Financial settlements and the approach of the court

  • Company or business issues

  • Pensions

  • Parental responsibility

  • Applications for financial provision for children of the family

  • Step-parent applications for parental responsibility for a child of their spouse or civil partner

Our understanding team of family experts includes:

  • members of The Law Society Family Panel

  • a trained collaborative lawyer.
