Civil Partnerships

When a civil partnership breaks down, there can be numerous issues that need addressing.

Family Services

Advice will be needed about entering into a Separation Agreement with regards to financial issues and arrangements for any children you may have.

We can advise on the grounds available to commence court proceedings for dissolution of a civil partnership when regrettably the relationship has broken down irretrievably and can advise on the grounds available to commence dissolution proceedings and the costs that will be involved.

Alternatively, if you have been served with an application for dissolution of your civil partnership, we can provide advice in relation to completion of the court papers and any implications on allowing proceedings to continue undefended or, if necessary, advise on defending the same.

Whilst applications for dissolution of a civil partnership is a court based process, it rarely involves personal attendance at Court.

Our specialist Family Law Team can provide detailed expert advice on the circumstances, timescales and the costs.
