What are the grounds for a civil partnership dissolution?
A person petitioning to the Court to have a civil partnership dissolved must demonstrate the relationship has irretrievably broken down due to:
- Unreasonable behaviour – actions which have made it unreasonable for the petitioning party to live with their partner, for example; abuse, excessive drug and alcohol abuse, adultery etc
- Desertion – the other party has left the home you share with them without your consent and you have not been living together for two years
- Two-years’ separation – you and your partner have lived separately for two years and the other party agrees to the dissolution
- Five-years’ separation – you and your partner have lived separately for five years – no consent is required
How will a financial settlement be worked out in a civil partnership dissolution?
When working out a financial settlement following the dissolution of a civil partnership, the Court will consider the factors listed under section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973. These include (but not limited to:
- the current financial position of both parties
- the future earning potential of both parties
- any physical or mental disabilities
- the length of the marriage and the age of the parties
- the standard of living enjoyed by the couple
- the contributions each has made and will make in the future to the welfare of the family
Shabana and her team will put in the hard work and tenacious effort required to ensure you receive a fair financial settlement. We are experts in Alternative Dispute Resolution methods such as round-table negotiation and mediation, and can also engage in Collaborative law, where instead of conducting negotiations by letter or over the telephone, the discussions take place over a series of “four-way meetings”. However, if a court order is required to ensure you get the financial settlement you need to move on to a positive future, you can be fully confident we will not relent until your objectives are achieved.
