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.
Can I get a Civil Partnership Dissolution? You are required to have been in a Civil Partnership for at least a year before you can apply to the Court to end it. 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.
A dissolution petition can be based on one of the following four facts:
The parties have been separated for a period of 5 or more years. If any of the above apply, you are entitled to petition for Dissolution. Generally, as with divorce, dissolution is dealt with by way of agreement between the parties. In this instance, the dissolution is simply a paperwork exercise and will rarely require either party to attend Court.
Civil Dissolution Process
Our Civil Partnership Solicitors will assist with managing this process efficiently as possible. It is important to note that there are regrettably some instances where the Dissolution is contested. If this does happen, we have the expertise to advise you on what to do.
