Are you in a Civil Partnership?

Prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal in England in March 2014 same-sex couples could enter into a Civil Partnership. Expert legal advice is required to bring to an end a Civil Partnership as the process is the same as for divorce. Our experienced divorce lawyers do not underestimate the difficulty in deciding to end a Civil Partnership and it is important for you to know your rights in relation to financial matters and children when reaching that decision.

How do you start the process?
