Same sex couples who wish to give their relationship legal recognition have the choice of entering into a civil partnership or a marriage.
Before doing so, it is advisable to consider a Pre-Civil Partnership Agreement or a Pre-Nuptial Agreement which will confirm how your assets should be split if your marriage or civil partnership breaks down. Whilst not currently legally binding in England and Wales, when entered into correctly these agreements carry significant weight if a dispute reaches the court.
In the event your marriage or civil partnership breaks down, we can help you reach an amicable resolution with your ex-partner. As members of Resolution, we promote a constructive approach to family disputes and offer a full range of services including alternative dispute resolution and if needs be a traditional court based process.
Our family lawyers regularly deal with complex financial arrangements and will provide you with commercial advice that suits your needs.
Where children are involved, we will advise how to minimise the affect your separation has on them.
