Our experienced Civil Partnership Dissolution solicitors in Sheffield know that not all relationships work out and couples do separate. Many people ask the same question, is the Civil Partnership and Divorce procedure the same? The procedure isn't the exact same but it is very similar in that your relationship needs to have broken down irretrievably and by proving one of four facts;
Unlike divorce (same for same sex divorces), there is no provision within the Civil Partnership dissolution for “adultery” if your partner has been unfaithful to you during the relationship, then this could be included within the behaviour petition.
If you wish to dissolve your Civil Partnership straightaway, then the only fact you can rely on is behaviour. Otherwise you will have to wait 2 or 5 years depending on your circumstances. The reasons for a relationship breakdown can be very subjective, these are usually centred on lack of love and affection, support, financial conduct, working too hard, lack of communication.
