Civil Partnership Dissolution

As with any relationship breakdown, ending a civil partnership is a complex, often traumatic, mix of personal, practical and financial considerations. Our aim is to make this difficult process as swift and pain-free as possible for you, so you can sort things out and start getting your lives back on track.

The biggest areas of contention are likely to be around your finances. We have particular expertise in dealing with cases involving substantial assets, including those with complex pension, business, tax and trust issues. We are also experienced in dealing with offshore assets and cases with an international dimension. We always look to help couples resolve matters themselves wherever possible, but can advise on initiating court proceedings should this become necessary.

“ The Litigation team at MacDonald Oates were excellent! I had real confidence in the clear advice I was given and my case was skillfully handled throughout. ”

“ I was very pleased with the wonderful assistance as I am elderly and needed advice, and am very grateful for the help I received. ”

“ Having Tim ‘on side’ during this traumatic episode made a real difference. He was a tremendous support but at the same time kept me focussed on the main objective, i.e. obtaining a sensible outcome. This, thankfully, we did achieve. ”
