A Civil Partnership can be entered by same-sex couples. If you are contemplating entering into a Civil Partnership, then you may wish to seek legal advice to clarify the implications of such a commitment. Pre-partnership agreements for same-sex couples can offer a sensible way of attempting to protect your assets, just as pre-nuptial agreements can for same-sex marriages.
As with married couples, civil partners are barred from applying for termination of the partnership until one year after the date of the civil ceremony and as with divorce, one partner must prove that the partnership has broken down irretrievably.
We can give you information about the provisions of this area of law and we have the experience to advise you on issues such as finance and property division should your Civil Partnership break down.
