Civil Partnerships


Perhaps marriage is not for you or your partner; if that is the case, then you can opt for the alternative, a Legal Civil Partnership.

Regardless of whether you are a same-sex couple or an opposite-sex couple, a civil partnership will provide you with that all-important legal recognition within our relationship.

Understanding Civil Partnerships

A civil partnership has the same responsibilities as a marriage; however, there is a slight difference. Unlike a marriage, where vows are exchanged, a civil partnership requires a couple to sign specific documentation in order to make the union official in the eyes of the law.

Civil partnership was first introduced in 2005 as a way for same-sex couples to receive legal recognition and protection. Initially, this union was restricted to same-sex couples only until the law was changed in 2019, which allowed opposite-sex couples to enter a civil partnership instead of marriage.

It is important to note that if you enter a civil partnership, you will receive the same rights as a married couple.
