Civil Partnerships

Advice and support to move forward with confidence

Dissolving a civil partnership can be a highly emotional and distressing experience, but with clear expert legal advice it needn’t be devastating.

Our experienced family solicitors have helped thousands of families take back control of their lives and can provide all the advice, support and robust representation you need to move forward with confidence.

Every relationship breakdown is unique and the issues you face may seem daunting and unpredictable. Rest assured that we are experts on the dissolution process, negotiating financial settlements, arrangements for children and sensitive issues such as domestic violence.

A dedicated lawyer will take time to fully understand your situation, sensitively guide you through your options and keep you informed of developments as your case progresses. While robustly acting in your interests at all times, we will always try to minimise conflict and stress. All our family lawyers are members of Resolution and we strive to resolve family legal issues in a non-confrontational way. This means using non adversarial approaches to settlement such as direct negotiation, collaborative law and mediation wherever possible.

Our advice will always be free of unnecessary and complicated legal jargon so that you fully understand what to expect from the process and can make informed decisions for you and your family.

We understand that you will not want to incur unnecessary costs. We work hard to keep our fees competitive and clear. During our initial consultation, we will work with you to create a customised legal package that fits your needs and budget.

With the advent of no-fault proceedings in 2022, the process of dissolving a civil partnership has been streamlined and will take between seven and twelve months to complete.

Tempting as it can be to listen to the well-meaning advice of family or friends, even if they have been through a legal separation themselves, failing to consult a specialist early can add to the cost and may not protect your interests.

Seeking advice early helps ensure the formal process is handled correctly and that all the related issues such as arrangements for children and dividing property are considered in a timely manner. Financial arrangements need to be agreed and formalised before the final order is made and even those who manage the dissolution process without legal support should take advice on the financial ramifications.
