Civil partnership dissolution
Just as people in a civil partnership benefit from the same rights as married couples in terms of tax benefits, pensions and inheritance; ending a civil partnership provides the same entitlements as a spouse who gets divorced.
As with divorce proceedings, dissolving a civil partnership is completed by the court. Obtaining a dissolution in England and Wales is different from dissolution in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
As part of the process 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.
