What happens when a civil partnership comes to an end?

What happens when a civil partnership comes to an end?

As in marriage, civil partnerships must be legally dissolved if the couple decide to end the relationship and the only ground for dissolving the partnership is, like divorce, the irretrievable breakdown of the relationship. This must be based on one of four facts - which are again identical to those for divorce save for the omission of adultery. The procedure for dissolution is almost identical to that of divorce. Upon dissolution of the partnership the court will make a Dissolution Order.

Again, similar to divorce, the civil partnership can be annulled by the court, in certain circumstances.

To dissolve a civil partnership, it must have lasted for at least one year. The court must be satisfied that the relationship has permanently broken down, to do this you need to prove one of the following facts:

  • Behaviour
  • Separation of 2 years or more with consent; or
  • Separation of 5 years or more
  • Desertion
