Civil Partnerships

Civil Partnerships

A civil partnership can be dissolved in a similar procedure to a divorce.

It must be proved that the civil partnership has broken down irretrievably, and one of the following grounds relied upon:

  • unreasonable behaviour – the civil partner has behaved in such a way that the applicant cannot reasonably be expected to live with them
  • desertion – the civil partner must have been gone for a minimum of two years
  • separation – the couple have been separated for 2 years and both parties agree to the dissolution
  • separation – the couple have been separate for 5 years.
