If you have reached a point where you are wanting to dissolve your civil partnership, our team of solicitors can help you. As with the breakdown of any relationship, it can be a traumatic time and receiving expert advice on how to handle the Dissolution is very important to ensure your best interests are looked after.
If you have been in a Civil Partnership you have the same rights as married couples to end the partnership. This is called dissolving a Civil Partnership.
There is only one ground for Civil Partnership Dissolution in England and Wales and this is that the civil partnership has irretrievably broken down. After 6 April 2022 there is no need to apportion blame to prove this.
Criteria to apply for dissolution:
Before you proceed with a dissolution, you must meet the following criteria:
You can apply even if your civil partnership was in another country, but it is very important in these circumstances to seek urgent advice to avoid a jurisdiction dispute.
It is important to note that the financial aspects of dissolution are dealt with separately from the dissolution and you must reach a financial settlement to ensure this is legally binding. Further information can be found on our Financial Settlement page.
Arrangements for children will also need to be dealt with separately.
Once you have your final order and your Civil Partnership has ended and you can enter into another Civil Partnership if you wish.
Our Civil Partnership Solicitors will assist with managing this process efficiently as possible.
