Same-sex relationships

The legal system has progressed significantly in terms of supporting the rights of same-sex couples. You can now marry in a civil ceremony or within a religious organisation if that organisation has opted to conduct same-sex marriages.

Our clients come to us with a variety of issues concerning same-sex relationships, including:

  • Living together (cohabitation)
  • Civil partnerships
  • Pre-civil partnership agreement
  • Civil partnership divorce (known as dissolution)
  • Separation agreements
  • Child-related issues

Our clients are often unsure of their legal rights, particularly when it comes to a relationship breakdown and the dissolving of a civil partnership. The law now states that married couples of the same sex have the same rights as married heterosexual couples and our experienced lawyers can guide and advise you through the process.

For more information on dissolution, please refer to our Separation page or please call us to book your free initial assessment on 0333 12 12345 (International callers +44 1992 505 406), complete a Free Online Enquiry or email info@betteridges.com and we will soon be in touch.
