Civil partnerships and same-sex marriages

We can help if you are in a civil partnership or a same-sex marriage and are needing advice concerning the breakdown of your relationship. We have experience of advising on the formal ending of civil partnerships and same-sex marriages and on any related financial rights and other issues following separation.

Legal recognition of same-sex couples was introduced in 2005 with the effect of civil partnerships. Further more recent developments in the law introduced in 2013 now enable same-sex couples to marry in England and Wales. This also means that if you entered into a same-sex marriage abroad, and were consequently treated as civil partners in England and Wales, you are now recognised as married in England and Wales.

It is important for your legal adviser to have an understanding of how the evolving legislation and rulings concerning civil partnerships and same-sex marriages impact on your specific circumstances. We offer a free 30 minute initial meeting for new clients at any of our offices which gives you the opportunity to meet with us and confirm that we are the right legal advisers for you and your situation.
