Civil Partnerships

The Civil Partnership Act 2004 allowed same sex couples to have their relationship recognised under law. They can do this at their local register office.

A couple registering a civil partnership must go through a process which involves 'giving notice' at their  local register office. "Giving notice"  is simply declaring that you want to register a civil partnership.

A civil partnership gives a same sex couple certain legal rights which are on par with those previously only enjoyed by married couples.  Areas where a civil partnership can benefit a same sex couple include:

  • tax and pensions
  • employment benefits
  • parental responsibility for civil partner's children and child maintenance
  • access to accident compensation and insurance
  • protection from domestic violence
  • immigration rights
