We're here to help with your civil partnership
While same-sex couples can now legally marry in England and Wales, they also have the option of entering a civil partnership, which offers legal and financial protections similar to those of marriage. In December 2019, the Government introduced new legislation to allow opposite-sex couples to enter into civil partnerships.
What are the advantages of a civil partnership?
Even though same-sex couples can now marry, not everyone likes the religious or traditional aspects of the marriage institution. Civil partnerships offer many of the same rights and responsibilities but outside the institution of marriage.
If you are buying a property together or having children for example, you should consider civil partnership as a way of protecting you.
A civil partnership can help to protect you both legally and financially and ensure that any children you have together will be looked after in the event of separation or the dissolution of your civil partnership.
To find out more about the rights and responsibilities of civil partnerships, or for any other legal advice, simply call 0330 041 5869 or contact us online today and we will call you and discuss your next steps without obligation.
How can I dissolve a civil partnership?
The process of dissolving a civil partnership is the same as a divorce, with the only difference being the terminology. Our civil partnership lawyers will listen to your needs and guide you through the process to achieve the best outcome for you, no matter how complex.

Our family law team are highly specialised in all areas of family law.
The best solicitors to fight your corner! I struggled with a nasty unmarried couple dispute alone for over a year before biting the bullet and paying for proper legal support. I had one previous experience with a cheaper less well-known solicitor and I just felt completely let down and not a priority. But with Slater and Gordon, from start to finish, I felt supported 100% and valued. B L (family and personal matters case)
Matters were dealt with efficiently with a view to keeping costs to a realistic level and I am well satisfied with the final settlement she managed to achieve on my behalf. J B (family and personal matters case)
For anyone needing help with family issues I could not recommend Slater and Gordon highly enough. I always had the feeling I had the best looking after my interests and they certainly didn't disappoint. C I (family and personal matters case)
