Same sex couples who have entered into a civil partnership are able to dissolve their union the same way as hetrosexual partners who are dissolving their marriage. The process and forms are the same.

For same sex couples who have married, they also follow the same process as hetrosexual couples when dissolving their marriage. The financial claims that same sex couples have are also identical to hetrosexual married couples. For more information please read ‘financial issues – married’.
