Our legal services for UK civil partnerships

We can help you through every stage of a civil partnership, from protecting yourself before your registration through to managing all of the legal and practical issues involved in the end of a civil partnership.

Pre- civil partnership agreements & post-civil partnership agreements

A pre-civil partnership agreement (also known as a ‘pre-registration agreement’) allows you to set out how your finances would be separated, and other practical issues dealt with, if your relationship were to end. This can give you peace of mind and minimise any potential conflict if you do later need to dissolve your civil partnership.

You can also create a post-civil partnership agreement at any time after your civil partnership has been registered. This can allow you to get the same protection as a pre-civil partnership agreement where you did not make one or update your agreement if your circumstances have changed since your registration e.g. if you have had children or received an inheritance.

Civil partnership dissolution

We can guide you through the legal process of formally ending your civil partnership, including applying to a court for a dissolution order (or a separation order where your relationship has lasted less than a year).

By ensuring the relevant forms are filled out correctly and submitted promptly, we can help the process to move faster and more smoothly. We can also support you in discussion with your former partner or in court proceedings if required.

Financial settlements for civil partnership dissolution

Our family lawyers have a strong track record of achieving favourable financial settlements under even the most challenging circumstances. We can ensure all relevant assets are properly considered, including savings, investments, property and pensions, so that you can secure a fair settlement that matches your needs.

With strong expertise in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) we can normally work out a fair settlement without the need for court proceedings, however, we also have strong skills and experience with representing clients in court where required.

Arrangements for children during civil partnership dissolution

Where you have children with your former partner, we can help you to make arrangements for where they will live, what contact they will have with the non-resident parent and any other issues, such as establishing parental responsibility.

Through family mediation and other non-confrontational methods, we can help find a solution that protects your rights as a parent while prioritising the wellbeing of your children. Where court proceedings are required, we will do everything possible to keep the process as stress-free as we can for you and your children.
