On Dissolution

We understand that dealing with the emotions of a civil partnership dissolution can be  overwhelming. As well as feelings of anger, hurt and grief, there may also be financial issues to consider which can add to feelings of anxiety at what is already an extremely emotional time.

If your civil partnership is in the process of breaking down, a number of different scenarios or questions may be at the forefront of your mind:

  • You may be worried about where you and the children will live should the family home need to be sold;
  • You may be concerned about maintenance and finances for your ex-partner and your children whilst also trying to start a new life of your own;
  • You may feel that your ex-partner is unlikely to cooperate in terms of disclosing their finances and that you may struggle to establish the truth;

We can help you with all of those situations because we recognise that worries over money cause tension, ill-health and feelings of vulnerability. These feelings can worsen an already fraught relationship and impact on the welfare of your children.

Our team of specialist civil partnership lawyers is experienced in the financial issues that will impact on your case and we will help you in the most appropriate and cost effective way.  We aim to adopt a non-adversarial approach to resolving matters, and we find collaborative law and mediation are powerfully effective tools to help you deal with the dissolution of your civil partnership.

We will always strive to find the best solution for you and your family.  We will consider every option for you, providing you with guidance and advice and signposting you to our extensive support network of financial advisors, counsellors, and other family specialists.
