Civil Partnerships allows same sex couples who register their relationships to have them legally recognised in the United Kingdom and to have similar rights and responsibilities to those of heterosexual married couples.

There are 4 essential requirements to form a legally binding civil partnership:

  1. The civil partners must be of the same sex
  2. Neither civil partner can already be a civil partner or lawfully married
  3. Both civil partners must be over the age of 18 years (or over the age of 16 and have the consent of “appropriate persons”)
  4. The civil partners must not form a prohibited relationship

A civil partnership can only be ended by death, dissolution or annulment. The court can make financial Orders on the dissolution of a civil partnership.
