A Civil Partnership is a legally recognised union between 2 people of the same sex.
The Civil Partnership Act 2006 governs both the forming of and breakdown of a Civil Partnership. This is an area of law that is still relatively new and is continuing to develop. As a result, very few firms have the expertise to assist couples following the breakdown of a civil partnership.
At Paul Ireland solicitors we have the expert knowledge that is required to deal with the potential issues that may arise following the breakdown of a civil partnership. We are able to offer advice and guidance in connection with the following:
- The grounds for dissolving a Civil Partnership
- Financial settlements on the dissolution of a Civil Partnership
- Issues relating to children when a Civil Partnership is dissolved
