The Divorce Process

The Divorce Process

If you are thinking about or already taking steps to seek a divorce, then it is essential to get professional legal and financial advice.

In the following sections, you will find information about the legal process of divorce and ending a civil partnership.

Dissolution of a civil partnership

The process for the dissolution of a civil partnership is the same as it is for divorce. However, there is one area where the law differs.

You cannot end a civil partnership on the grounds of adultery. If your partner has been unfaithful, then the grounds for terminating the civil partnership would be unreasonable behaviour.
