Civil Partnerships

Same sex couples can now get recognition of their relationship under law. This right has been in place since 2004 when the Civil Partnership Act was passed

Family Law Leicester can advise on civil partnerships and the process involved. For example, to register a civil partnership in Leicester you need to go through the process of 'giving notice' at your local register office in Leicester. This gives you as a couple simliar legal rights to those enjoyed by married couples in areas such as tax, employment benefits and pensions.

Civil partnership couples have increased rights and responsibilities regarding child maintenance and parental responsibility for their civil partner's children.

There are also added benefits in other areas of the law including:

  • access to accident compensation and insurance
  • protection from domestic violence
  • immigration rights

All this can be quite complex, and if you are in Leicester and in a civil partnership or considering entering into one, you will benefit from the expert legal advice from our best family law solicitors at Family Law Leicester. We will provide a professional and tailored service that fits with your situation.
