Civil Partnerships & Same Sex Couples

Since 2014, same-sex couples can now marry. It is possible to convert a civil partnership to a marriage. Couples that live together do not automatically have a right to a share in the finance or property of the partner following separation.

In the early stages of a relationship, the prospect of future separation may seem unlikely. However, if you are at the stage in a relationship of contemplating shared finances, having a family or buying a property some legal advice could avoid future complications and provide certainty in the event that the worst happens and the relationship breaks down.

If you are in a same-sex relationship we can advise you on all family issues that may arise such as:-

  • Marriage
  • Civil Partnerships
  • Divorce & Dissolution
  • Finance
  • Pre-nuptial and pre-partnership agreements
  • Arrangements for children - including contact, residence and shared residence

We are happy to discuss your current circumstances and offer an initial free 30 minute consultation. We can give you advice about the legal options that are available to meet your needs and an estimate of likely costs.


During the course of my case I found the staff extremely friendly and easy to talk to, they explained everything within the process that was going to follow along with advice on what they thought would be best in my case. The replies I received if I had any questions or queries were speedy and a great help. If you need a Family Law firm I would definitely recommend A&N care solicitors to anyone looking for a fast, friendly and highly skilled company/solicitor to not just represent you but to help and guide you through the whole process. Thank you A&N for all you have done for this father.

I’ve been represented by other solicitors before but none looked after me like Helen did. She is really friendly and has been there for me even after the case finished. I genuinely believe she cares about her clients and this is not just her job. If I ever need a solicitor again I would come back and have already passed Helen’s name on to a friend.
