Same Sex Divorce / Dissolution Solicitors Newcastle and Sunderland.

Sunderland and Newcastle Family Lawyers. Jacqueline Emmerson has been dealing with same sex relationships for over 20 years; she has seen huge changes in the law during that time which means that same sex couples now enjoy all of the protection of the law that was previously denied to them. As a result of her efforts on behalf of same sex couples, prior to the changes in the law, Jacqueline has built up a large following amongst the LGBT community.

Same Sex Divorce/Civil Partnership Dissolution

Civil Partnership Dissolution is the name given to the process which legally ends a Civil Partnership. The court process for dissolution or divorce of a Same Sex Civil Partnership or marrage is almost identical to traditional divorce proceedings. There is also now a court process for Same Sex Divorce, following the introduction of same sex marriage. It enables you and your partner to arrange your financial affairs and to have them sanctioned by the court if necessary.

The grounds for Dissolution or Same Sex Divorce are as follows:-

  1. Unreasonable behaviour by your partner.
  2. Desertion, where your partner has left you for a period of at least two years.
  3. Two years separation from your partner and they consent to the dissolution.
  4. Five years separation from your partner in which case their consent is not necessary.
