We represent many clients who reach the decision to end their civil partnership. This is a very similar process to dissolving a marriage and is achieved by filing a dissolution petition with the court.
You will need to show that the civil partnership has broken down irretrievably, by proving one of four facts:
- Unreasonable behaviour
- Two years separation plus consent
- Five years separation.
Unlike marriage, it is not possible to use adultery as a fact in a civil partnership dissolution.
It is only possible to apply after a period of one year has elapsed from the date of the partnership.
For further advice on dissolving a civil partnership, please contact Louise Allard or Sabrina Bailey on 020 7993 2936.
