Civil Partnerships Solicitors in Ashby de la Zouch & Tamworth

 

Civil Partnership Dissolution

Under the Civil Partnership Act of 2004, same-sex couples over the age of 16 are able to legally register their relationship as a civil partnership. The breakdown of a relationship can be an emotionally complex and confusing time, and often it helps to have your options explained and to gain professional advice, especially when financial issues and children are involved. Fishers civil partnership dissolution solicitors have vast experience in dealing with same-sex separations, so you can rest assured that you’ll be in safe hands and your best interests will be protected. If you are planning to end your civil partnership, contact our solicitors at our Tamworth Office or our Ashby de la Zouch Office for expert advice.

 

Just as each relationship is unique, so too are the circumstances in which they break down. Our team of dedicated civil partnership dissolution solicitors know this best of all, and believe that in order to best advise you, it’s essential to fully understand what you and your partner are going through. This way, we can provide an approach that is tailored to meet your individual needs and we can work together to secure the outcome that works for you.

 

Get in touch with a Civil Partnership Solicitor

For further information on any of the above services or to book an appointment with one of our specialist civil partnership dissolution solicitors please call your nearest office or complete the enquiry form and a member of our team will be in touch.

 

Just as in divorce, we will aim to have your dissolution settled amicably and outside of court through mediation or negotiation. If this is possible, the court will approve the agreement you and your partner have come to and make an order that reflects it. However, if for example you and your partner cannot come to an agreement on crucial matters such as finances, litigation may be necessary. If this is the case, Fishers specialist team of civil partnership dissolution solicitors will be right by your side to guide you through the court process with ease and expertise.

Civil Partnership FAQ

 

What are the differences between divorce and civil partnership dissolution?

It is important to note that while the grounds accepted for civil partnership dissolution are mostly the same as those accepted in divorce, there are certain differences. Adultery, for example, does not count as reasonable grounds for dissolution. It could still however, be counted as unreasonable behaviour. Another change is the use of the terms ‘conditional order’ and ‘final order’ in place of ‘Decree Nisi’ and ‘Decree Absolute.’ Other than this, the procedure is essentially the same.

 

When can I file for civil partnership dissolution?

Just as with divorce, you will only be able to file a petition for dissolution 12 months after you have legally registered your relationship as a civil partnership.

 

What is the cost?

While Legal Aid is no longer available for divorce or dissolution cases, Fishers offer a fixed fee initial appointment where you can discuss your situation with our expert civil partnership solicitor. You will leave the meeting with a clear understanding of your options, the likely costs, and the probable timescales concerned.

 

We are also able to offer various other services on a fixed fee basis including drafting agreements. For more information on Fishers fixed fee options click here.
