Civil Partnerships/Same Sex Marriages
The specialist family lawyers at The Sethi Partnership Solicitors understand that going through a divorce or separation can be very stressful. At such a difficult and emotionally challenging time, having clear and pragmatic support can be invaluable. We strive to make the journey as smooth as possible, whilst, ensuring that your interests and those of your family are protected.
The Civil Partnership Act 2004 provides for same sex couples to enter into a Civil Partnership which effectively ‘registers’ their relationship by signing a document.
Couples who have entered into a Civil Partnership acquire the same rights in respect of inheritance, pensions and also tax benefits which married couples have.
Same sex couples also have the option to convert their Civil Partnership into a same sex marriage.
The procedure in relation to dividing the financial assets upon the dissolution of a Civil Partnership is the same as those for a marriage where divorce proceedings have been issued.
Same Sex Marriages
Same sex couples now have the ability to get married under the provisions in the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013.
