Civil Partnerships in Solihull
We can help you to understand your rights and responsibilities at every stage in your civil partnership, from planning to dissolution.
Civil partnerships offer an alternative to marriage for those who cannot or do not wish to have a traditional or religious ceremony. Just like marriage, a civil partnership offers legal rights and responsibilities which sometimes need to be enforced.
Before entering into a civil partnership, some couples will choose to sign something known as a 'Pre-Civil Partnership Agreement'. Like a prenuptial agreement, this important document will outline what should happen if your relationship breaks down. Having this document in place will help to minimise stress and grievances. Alongside pre-civil partnership agreement advice, we can also advise on estate planning to ensure your Will is up-to-date and reflects your current circumstances.
Civil partnership dissolution
Couples who wish to legally end their civil partnership do not go through a divorce process, they go through a process known as dissolution. This will legally end your relationship and determine your responsibilities moving forward. We can help you with the following aspects of your civil partnership dissolution:
Reaching a financial agreement
Child law issues, including contact arrangements
Updating your Wills and navigating property issues
The breakdown of a relationship can be very distressing. Our team will work with you to provide guidance and support when you need it most. Wherever possible, we aim to reach amicable agreements through roundtables and mediation to help minimise the stress and expense of a dissolution.
