When Same Sex Relationships Break Up

The law on dissolving a civil partnership mirrors that of divorce law with one exception: you cannot petition upon the grounds of adultery.

In the case of a same sex marriage, you can divorce relying on adultery but only where the adultery is with a person of the opposite sex. Your claims for all forms of financial help on dissolution are exactly the same as on a divorce between heterosexual spouses. Any children that you have during the marriage or civil partnership are treated in the same way as children of heterosexual married couples. This also applies to the rules on a pre-civil partnership agreement or a post-civil partnership agreement.

Our family team are supportive and have a wealth of experience in assisting same sex couples in Norfolk, Suffolk, London and beyond.
