Civil Partnerships

The Civil Partnership Act 2004 enabled couples in a same sex relationship to enter into a form of marriage and register there relationship in a Civil Ceremony.

The effect of entering into a Civil Partnership is very similar to the effect of entering into a marriage. The Civil Partnership imposes upon the couple a legal status which brings with it various rights and obligations to include financial obligations.

Before entering into a Civil Partnership agreement all parties need to ensure that they have considered carefully what their plans are for the future in respect of finances, family and what will happen if the relationship breaks down.

All of this can be agreed beforehand and can form part of an agreement very similar to a pre-marital or pre-nuptial agreement. If both parties have been fully and properly advised then the pre-partnership agreement can be legally enforceable should the Civil Partnership breakdown.

At Morecrofts, our specialist family law team have a wealth of experience in helping same sex couples to plan for their future. We give pragmatic advice during what can be a heady and exciting time ensuring what is best for you and your partner.

We understand how worrying legal costs can be so have a range of payment options available to suit your budget and needs. We offer fixed fee packages alongside our traditional fee system and we work with you to decide which is best for you and your family. We will assess whether you are eligible for legal aid and, as we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency, we can grant legal aid immediately if necessary.
