If you have taken the difficult decision to end your civil partnership, you will will need to show that your relationship has broken down irretrievably by proving one of four facts:
Unlike marriage, it is not possible to use adultery as a fact in a civil partnership dissolution.
You must have been in your civil partnership for at least a year before you can apply for a dissolution.
