Civil Partnerships

 Since December 2005 it has been possible for same sex couples to register their partnership.

A registered Civil Partnership is a marriage and despite some small differences the substantive law is the same, for example:

  • Civil partners benefit from the same tax breaks as married couples;
  • Civil partners can get parental responsibility for each other's children;
  • Save for the omission of adultery the dissolution process is the same as for divorce;
  • Financial settlements on dissolution of a Civil Partnership are the same as on divorce;

Please contact one of our family team in either our Camberley or Wokingham office to discuss your individual needs.

Our Family & Matrimonial team is delighted to have been recognised in this year's edition of the UK Legal 500 as a leading advisor in the Thames Valley area.
