A Civil Partnership gives same-sex couples rights and responsibilities very similar to those of married couples. Civil Partners are entitled to many of the rights and responsibility as married opposite-sex couples, including but not limited to, the same property rights and inheritance tax exemptions and also the ability to get parental responsibility for a partner’s children.

The law relating to Civil Partnership is outlined in The Civil Partnership Act 2004 and this is the legislation referred to when Civil Partners wish to dissolve and bring their civil partnership union to an end.
