“The procedure for dissolving a civil partnership and achieving settlement is the same as divorce.”
Since 2004, the Civil Partnership Act has enabled same sex couples to register as civil partners.
Since 2014, the Marriage (same sex couples) Act 2014 provides for same sex couples to marry and also enables civil partners to convert their partnership to a marriage.
Effectively whether you are dealing with the breakdown of civil partnerships or a same sex marriage, the law and approach is the same.
