Civil Partnerships

“Your sterling efforts achieved financial and emotional stability for me.”

Silk Family Law client

The Civil Partnership Act 2005 enables same-sex cohabitating couples to register their civil partnership.

This gives same-sex cohabitating couples rights, resulting in the joint treatment of income, tax, pensions, life insurance, inheritance, and tenancy, as well as responsibility for children.

If the relationship breaks down, courts have the power to dissolve civil partnerships and make decisions about children and finances as they would in a ‘traditional’ divorce case.

We advise on the legal rights and responsibilities relating to civil partnerships, including pre-registration agreements and applications to dissolve.
