Entering into a civil partnership is a happy occasion – and therefore you may think it is one in which solicitors would not need to be involved. But a civil partnership can have many implications for the legal rights of you and your partner. In this new stage of your lives, it is important to be aware of how these changes may affect you.
Once you are aware of the effects a civil partnership will have on your rights, you and your partner may prefer to modify these effects in certain ways – such as with regard to valuable assets or property. For example you may wish to protect:
In these situations, you might find that a pre-partnership agreement (which is very similar to a prenuptial agreement) would help you to alter the way rights are acquired and shared over those assets. Truth Legal can advise you on this process.
Since 2014, it has been possible for same-sex couples to marry in England and Wales. In terms of the legal rights involved, there is very little difference between marriage and civil partnership. You and your partner’s views on the two kinds of union are really the only important consideration when deciding between them.
Also, since December 2019, it has been possible for opposite-sex partners to enter into a civil partnership in England and Wales.
If you are facing the dissolution of a civil partnership, it is important to bear in mind that civil partners have essentially the same legal rights and obligations as married spouses going through a divorce:
The legal process can be relatively straightforward. Even if one partner does not want to dissolve the civil partnership they cannot legally contest or prevent it. However, complications are more likely to arise when it comes to dividing joint assets and money.
Similarly, if you and your partner have any children together, they may give rise to other areas of dispute. Truth Legal’s specialist family solicitors can advise you fully on matters of child law in relation to the dissolution of a civil partnership.
