    Our Dissolution of Civil Partnership Expertise

    If you would like to end your civil partnership our solicitors can support you to apply for a dissolution order. You will not need to provide a reason for the dissolution, only to confirm that the relationship has broken down irretrievably.

    At Tinsdills we are experts in supporting clients through the process. We will ensure to provide detailed information so that you understand the stages to follow along with your legal responsibilities.

    We can offer assistance throughout the process, including:

    • Assistance to complete the D8 application form to end the civil partnership, (including joint or individual applications)
    • Making arrangements for financial and child care matters
    • Help to apply for a Conditional Order
    • Support to apply for a Final Order, (to finalise the end of the partnership)

    If you and your civil partner have children, you will need to make certain arrangements for them when you separate. For example, you will need to determine where your children will live, whether with one parent for the majority of the time, or if care will be split equally. It’s also necessary to consider how your child’s living expenses will be covered.

    Our expert family law solicitors can help clients in various ways, including:

    • Obtaining a child arrangements order to esbtalish where your children will live
    • Family mediation or collaborative law methods to settle disputes that arise concerning your children

    When you are ending a civil partnership, you will need to make financial arrangements. You’ll need to determine how any shared assets, money and property will be divided.

    Financial settlements can often give rise to tension and disputes, which is why legal assistance is often required. At Tinsdills, we can help parting couples to establish a fair division of their finances, helping them to negotiate and a reach a voluntary financial agreement.

    Reaching a legally binding financial settlement involves the consideration of various factors, such as:

    • The income of both parties, and anticipated future income
    • The financial obligations and needs of both partners
    • The standard of life experienced by both before the partnership ended
    • How each partner contributed to the home, to child care, and financially

    As part of the financial settlement process, our expert solicitors can support clients to obtain a clean break order. This order prevents individuals from making financial claims against their ex-partners in the future. Obtaining a clean break order is an essential step to protect your assets and avoid financial disputes later.
