To Dissolve Your Civil Partnership
You must have been in a civil partnership for more than one year before you can make an application to the court and will need to provide evidence of one or more of following:
- Unreasonable behaviour, such that you cannot reasonably be expected to continue to live with your civil partner
- Separation for two years, where your civil partner consents to a dissolution order
- Separation for five years
- Desertion by your civil partner for a period of two years prior to the application
If the court is satisfied that the civil partnership has broken down irretrievably, a dissolution order will be granted.
