The Civil Partnership Act 2010 came in to force in 2011 and introduced far-reaching changes for unmarried couples living together. Before the enactment of this Act when a relationship ended the couple were strangers in law. Neither party had any rights to maintenance or support from their ex partner. Under the new Act a qualifying cohabitee (both same sex and opposite sex) can apply to the court for financial orders similar to those granted on the Separation or Divorce of a married couple. The Act now imposes obligations on unmarried cohabiting couples unless they specifically choose to opt out. We can advise on the impact of this legislation. Family Law has been a key component of our practice since its foundation. We have particular expertise in resolving disputes in cases of financial complexity involving high net worth individuals and families.
