Civil Partnership Dissolution

Family Solicitors in Birmingham & Manchester

A Civil Partnership is a legally recognised relationship between two people of the same sex. Under the Civil Partnerships Act 2004, Civil partners are given many of the same rights and responsibilities as married couples, including the same property rights, exemption on inheritance tax, pension benefits and parental responsibility.

As with marriage, when a Civil Partnership breaks down, the couple can legally separate; this is called Civil Partnership Dissolution. Just like with divorce, there are a lot of things to consider when undertaking Civil Partnership Dissolution.

Having the specialist advice and support of a Family Law specialist is essential not only to ensure that your matter is resolved effectively, but that the effect that emotionally stressful procedures can have on your family.
