Civil Partnerships

The breakdown of a relationship is often a difficult time. Our specialist team of solicitors can advise on dissolution and financial settlement.

If you have been in a civil partnership for over a year, you can bring dissolution proceedings on the basis of the irretrievable breakdown of the partnership. However, there are only four facts upon which you can rely on to support the irretrievable breakdown, as follows;

  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • 2 years separation by consent
  • Desertion for 2 years
  • 5 years separation

Most dissolution cases proceed undefended. If this is not the case, our trained family specialists can advise on defended petitions and cross petitions.

There may be financial matters which need to be resolved following the breakdown of the relationship. We have expert knowledge on financial settlement and our team would be more than happy to advise on available options.
