Just like with divorce, you cannot apply for a dissolution until the first anniversary of the civil partnership. You can apply for financial provision by way of lump sum, property transfer, maintenance and pension sharing orders. Financial provision can also be applied for in respect of any child or children of the family.
A civil partner seeking dissolution is entitled not to be evicted from the home that the couple has shared. Each party can also apply for an injunction order under the Family Law Act 1996 if there has been domestic violence in the relationship.
