Our Services: Dissolution of Civil Partnerships

DISSOLUTION OF CIVIL PARTNERSHIP LAWYER IN BRISTOL, CLEVEDON & PORTISHEAD

As a specialist in civil partnerships in Bristol, Clevedon & Portishead, alongside the dissolution proceedings, we resolve all financial claims.

The dissolution of a Civil Partnership can be started after the first year of the Civil Partnership has elapsed, on the grounds that the Civil Partnership has irretrievably broken down.

The process is almost identical to the divorce process and will take around 3 -4 months to conclude, resulting in a ‘final order’ being granted by the court which dissolves your Civil Partnership.

Alongside the dissolution proceedings you must also consider a financial settlement, which will resolve all financial claims between the two of you.

We offer a fixed fee in relation to dissolution proceedings of £600 plus VAT & court fees (currently £410.00) if you are the Petitioner (the person bringing the divorce) and £250 plus VAT if you are the Respondent (the person responding to the dissolution proceedings).

''Katy Zikking and Harbour Family Law were extremely professional in their approach. Divorces are, I suspect, difficult and emotional times for all involved. Above just being a law firm dealing with the legal aspects of my divorce, I felt supported and guided. I found their advice invaluable, but also I found their approach to be warm and sympathetic – making that trying time much more bearable, and as smooth as could have been expected.''
