Understanding the Dissolution of Civil Partnerships
The process to bring a Civil Partnership to an end is similar to what it is for a divorce and you can pursue financial provision upon separation. It is a legal process that terminates the legal obligations and responsibilities associated with the partnership. Just as entering into a civil partnership involves legal documentation, ending one requires the completion of specific legal procedures to ensure that both parties’ interests are protected. We understand that it is often very emotional and can become stressful. Our family lawyers will listen to you, provide you with clear and realistic advice on your options and support you through the process and any other related issues.

A significant aspect of civil partnership dissolution involves the division of property and assets acquired during the partnership. Our lawyers can help negotiate fair settlements and ensure that the distribution aligns with legal standards.

We often facilitate negotiations between the parties to reach a settlement agreement. If an agreement is reached, it is submitted to the court for approval.
