Civil Partnership Dissolution
Sometimes things don’t go the way you expect
Relationships don’t always turn out the way they were expected to that’s why at Grayfords we take care of the unexpected. We will be able to guide you through the process and act on your behalf to secure the outcome you deserve. Dissolving a civil-partnership can be likened to a divorce; it terminates the civil partnership between you and your partner. Our expert solicitors can guide you through the entire process and assist you with all the required documents including the petition, conditional order and the final order. One of our specialist solicitors will negotiate with the other party on your behalf to reach financial settlements and arrangement for any children you may have together.
Converting a Civil Partnership into a Marriage
Giving your union equal status in law
Couples in a civil partnership are able to convert their union into a marriage in England and Wales. It is advisable for all couples to convert their partnership as not only will this allow gay and lesbian couples the same marital status as heterosexual couples, but it will also strengthen your legal rights as couple internationally.
Grayfords can assist you in the process of converting a civil partnership into a marriage; we will give you advice specific to your relationship, what a conversion means legally as well as help you to fill in all the documents that are required.
Protecting parental rights
At Grayfords we are specialists in child matters and have a depth of experience in protecting parental rights. We will negotiate with your partner on your behalf to determine residency, maintenance and contact regardless of whether you are married, in a civil-partnership or have no legal union.
We can also make applications to court if necessary and advocate on your behalf; but whatever happens you can know that we are always on your side. If your case needs a barrister we will engage the right one for you; our links with a number of top chambers will ensure you have one of the best Barristers in London.
Building a family
Family is important to us at Grayfords, it is at the core of everything we do. We are highly experienced in child matters and will be able to advise you on the Adoption and Children Act of 2002, which was revised to include same sex couples and single people.
If you are looking into adoption or are already involved in the process our expert team can advise you on your legal rights and required documentation. Our solicitors will help you through the legal steps in becoming a parent so you can get back to preparing for this exciting step in your life.
