civil partnerships

Since December 2005 same sex couples have been able to register their partnership which ensures they acquire the same rights and responsibilities as married couples. We have expertise in dealing with pre-civil partnership agreements and, if it all goes wrong, dealing with the dissolution of the partnership.

You may wish to consider the legal rights and responsibilities that your civil partnership confers upon you from the outset, or even in advance of registration. You may wish to consider having an agreement in place before the ceremony to protect your interests and those of your partner. This might be, for example, because you bring different capital into the relationship or you might plan to live in a property owned by one of you.
