If you are considering a divorce, we would highly recommend applying for a financial consent order or entering into a separation agreement. These agreements enable you as a couple to formally detail the division of your money, property and assets in writing.
The benefits of a separation agreement help avoid any issues in the future during your divorce, so you can both prove what has been agreed by both partners. Each separation agreement is reviewed in fairness by each partner; which is why we would advise you use a qualified solicitor to guide you throughout the negotiating process.

Our team has a wealth of experience dealing with civil partnership dissolutions. If your relationship has broken down, you are entitled to apply for a dissolution on the basis your partner agrees. As with divorce, you will have to apply to the court, detailing the reasons why you wish to end your partnership.
