DISSOLUTION OF CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS
What is a Civil Partnership?
A Civil Partership gives gay and lesbian couples the same legal rights as their married, heterosexual counterparts.
The procedure for dissolution of a civil partnership
One of the parties must file a petition with the court, requesting civil partnership dissolution. To obtain dissolution, you must have been in a civil partnership for more than one year. The Petitioner is the person responsible for proving the relationship has irretrievably broken down.
The Petitioner is required to complete a petition which contains details of the address, date, and whether or not children are involved.
A civil partnership dissolution follows the same course as a divorce. Please see our Divorce section for further information.
