Civil partnerships offer a host of legal benefits and protections for you and your partner, without the traditional elements of marriage. Whether you need advice on registering a civil partnership or wish to have one dissolved, our solicitors can help you.

Civil partnerships offer a valuable alternative for couples who wish to commit to each other without getting married traditionally. Before entering into a civil partnership, though, it is important to understand your rights and how they may differ from traditional marriage.

Our expert solicitors can help you prepare for your civil partnership with expert advice on a variety of topics, such as creating a pre-partnership agreement or cohabitation agreement and Will. If you wish to convert your civil partnership into a marriage, we can also help.

Alternatively, if your civil partnership has broken down, our solicitors can help you dissolve it with as little emotional stress as possible. We’ll guide you through the process of dissolving a civil partnership, as well as provide reliable advice on matters relating to finances and child arrangements.

Our family law solicitors can help you:

  • Register a civil partnership
  • Create a pre-partnership agreement
  • Create a cohabitation agreement
  • Convert your civil partnership into a marriage
  • File for dissolution/separation orders
  • Negotiate the division of assets
  • Advise on issues involving children (eg. Child arrangments and maintenance payments)
