Your civil relationship has broken down and you feel your only choice is to legally separate. A civil partnership is brought to an end by a Dissolution Order granted by the court. It cancels all legal responsibilities and duties of the civil partnership, essentially ending the legal contract between the couple. Our family law experts can guide you through the Dissolution process and will strive to reach a fair and amicable resolution. If matters cannot be resolved amicably, we will support during contested court proceedings.
Civil Partnership Dissolution Solicitors in Essex
There are some similarities between a dissolution and a divorce. As with a divorce, you cannot apply for a dissolution until a year after your civil partnership ceremony. Civil Partnerships have also been affected by landmark legislation changes in the Divorce, Dissolution, and Separation Act 2020. Before this, civil partners needed to prove their partnership had irretrievably broken down, or that they had been separated for a defined period. As of April 6th 2022, the Court will accept a statement from the Applicant, or a joint statement from both parties, as evidence of relationship breakdown. This will put an end to civil partners having to “point the finger” to legally end their partnership. The dissolution process does not include any financial settlements or arrangements for children.
At Kew Law, we can support you with these arrangements, whether they are formalised in an agreement or require an application to the courts. Our specialist solicitors are experts in this area of the law and can advise you on any issues relating to the dissolution of your civil partnership. They offer clear, strategic advice, and help you reach a legal solution that’s right for your situation.
