What is Same-Sex Marriage?

The Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Act 2013 was passed on 7th July 2013 and now allows same-sex couples to marry in civil ceremonies. We have over 20 years of experience finding the best solutions for our clients in all areas of Family Law, including:

Divorce And Financial Impact For Same-Sex Couples

When same-sex marriages break down, the process of bringing the marriage to an end is by way of divorce, the same as marriages between a man and woman.

We can assist you in the divorce process and deal with any other issues arising from your separation.

Financial matters will also need to be resolved and same-sex married couples will be subject to the same rules and principles as that of traditional husbands and wives.

We can assist you in recording an agreement reached between yourselves, or in negotiating an agreement as to how the assets of the marriage should be divided.

Both parties would need to disclose details of their financial positions as part of the negotiation process.

In the event that an agreement cannot be reached, we can assist you in making an application to court regarding financial matters.

It is now necessary to make a referral to mediation before court proceedings can be commenced, unless one of the few exemptions apply.

    The Specifics Of Same-Sex Marriage Divorce

    In the case of desire for divorce in a same-sex marriage, it is crucial that you seek out professional advice as soon as possible. At Tinsdills Solicitors, we have the necessary expertise and know how to deal with these matters sensitively, effectively, and with great benefit to you.

    In cases of same-sex marriage, as the law currently stands, you can only file for divorce on the basis of adultery if said adultery involves the opposite sex. Any claims regarding financial assistance for dissolution remain the same as with a divorce between male and female partners.

    We understand that many people have questions regarding same-sex marriage divorce, and how certain parts of the law may or may not differ from those of male and female marriage.

    Another factor many worry about is children. Fortunately, any children that you have within a same-sex marriage are, in the eyes of the law, considered in exactly the same way as a child from a male and female marriage. This is also the case regarding pre-civil and post-civil partnership agreements.

    We have the answers to all of these questions and more, as well as the best guidance on same-sex marriage divorce you’ll find anywhere.

    “I would like to thank you for all your help and support over the past few years, everything you have done is very much appreciated.”
