Civil Partnerships

On 5 December 2005, the Civil Partnership Act 2004 came into force in England and Wales. The purpose of the legislation was to enable same sex couples to legally formalise their relationship.


The effect of the Act is that same sex couples who enter into civil partnerships enjoy similar rights and responsibilities to that of married couples (subject to certain exceptions). If a civil partnership breaks down, the factors that will influence what financial settlement is reached are the same as those which impact upon financial matters on divorce.

Our civil partnership solicitors can help.
