Civil
Partnership Dissolution

Deciding to dissolve a civil partnership marks a significant turning point in your life and entails navigating through some complex legal processes. At Williamsons, we understand the gravity of this decision and are here to support and advise you every step of the way, ensuring the process is as smooth and transparent as possible.

Dealing with Civil Partnership Dissolution

A Civil Partnership puts same sex couples in the same legal position as those who are married with the same rights and responsibilities regarding issues of tax, state benefits, pensions, inheritance.

To initiate the dissolution of your civil partnership, it is necessary to have been in the partnership for more than a year. The next step involves applying to a court for dissolution. We will provide comprehensive support, whether you’re filing the document or responding to them. Your peace of mind and ensuring you are understood throughout any court proceedings is our top priority.
Should you have any questions or need to start this process, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01482 323 697.

Not everyone is ready or meets the legal prerequisites to dissolve their civil partnership immediately, especially if the partnership has been for less than a year. This doesn’t mean you’re without options. Our team can discuss various legal alternatives that might be more suited to your current circumstances.

These alternatives include obtaining a Separation Agreement, which outlines how both parties agree to live apart and manage financial matters and childcare arrangements.

Each option is different, and our approach is to provide personalised advice tailored to your unique situation, helping to bring clarity and control back during what can understandably be a turbulent time.

For a confidential discussion about how we can help with your partnership dissolution or to explore alternatives to dissolution, contact us on 01482 323 697.
