Same sex couples can now legally register their relationship as a civil partnership giving them the same benefits and rights as a heterosexual married couple. Many people have already taken this step. We are happy to advise our clients on the formalisation of their partnership.
Within a civil partnership you have a similar position and access to tax, benefits, pensions, inheritance and immigration just as a married couple do. Children born of either partner are treated as children of your family and the non-biological parent's relationship to the children is recognised.
We can advise you on all the implications involved with a civil partnership and draw up a pre-nuptial agreement if required. You will need to do this at least 3 weeks before the ceremony takes place. We can also act on your behalf should the relationship break down by assisting you through the legal process of Civil Partnership Dissolution.
We can also advise you in all matters relating to civil partnerships and the care of your children, whether that means mediation or representing you in court.

A couple cannot enter into a civil partnership just anywhere. There are certain offices where the registration can take place including hotels, restaurants and prestigious buildings.
