Civil Partnerships & Separation

If you’ve entered into a Civil Partnership and are separating, the process is very similar to that for divorce. There is a legal process to follow and a statement of irretrievable breakdown must be provided either by one or both parties at the commencement of the application.

We work with you to ensure that you understand the process and your options and that we understand your priorities. Our aim is to minimise any stress and achieve the best possible outcome for you. If children are involved then this will obviously be a major consideration and you may wish to also take a look at our Child Maintenance and Children Arrangements pages.

We can provide you with a fixed fee for this service so you will know exactly what costs you will need to pay.

To arrange an initial consultation to discuss the best way forward for you, please contact a member of our team below, or email in**@ro*******.uk and we will then provide you with further and specific advice tailored to your circumstances.

If you are unable to attend meetings at our offices or during regular office hours, we can usually arrange a home or out of hours appointment.


Changes to Civil Partnerships from 2020 for mixed-sex couples

Since the last day of 2019, mixed-sex couples have been able to form civil partnerships, formally only available to same-sex couples. The Supreme Court ruled that civil partnerships were discriminatory, and breached mixed-sex couples’ right to family and private life.

Many cohabiting couples believe that they are protected in respect of asset distribution on breakdown under so called “common law marriages”. However, cohabiting couples do not enjoy the same rights as those who are married or have entered into a civil partnership. It is understood that many cohabiting mixed-sex couples who have not wanted to get married, may seek to acquire those rights by entering into a civil partnership.

If you wish to seek advice regarding this area of law, please contact our Family Law team on 0208 974 7490 and ask to speak to a member of our team.
