To obtain dissolution by court order, it is necessary to prove that your civil partnership has irretrievably broken down. Irretrievable breakdown can be established by providing one of the four grounds for dissolution:
As with any relationship breakdown and divorce, on a decree of dissolution, the Court is given powers to make orders dealing with the arrangements for Residence and Contact of any children from the relationship. The Court can also make financial provision in the form of property transfer, pension, lump sum and maintenance Orders.
In most circumstances obtaining dissolution of a civil partnership is simple and straightforward and can usually be settled so you and your partner do not have to attend court.
The ‘petitioner’ (the person applying for the civil partnership dissolution) will carry out the majority of the dissolution process. The other party in the process is known as the ‘respondent’.
