Dissolve Civil Partnership when living permanently abroad
englishmaninnewyork - 09 January, 2017 07:52PM
Hi -

My ex and I entered into a Civil Partnership in 2013 in London. We both moved the USA (NYC) shortly after that and have lived here since. We married in NYC following the change of law in the USA. Now we are unfortunately filing for divorce here in the USA. Once that is approved we are unsure what to do about our UK Civil Partnership. Does the divorce in the USA automatically count towards dissolving the UK Civil Partnership? If not, how do we file for dissolution? No website I have come across provides any instructions on it nor hints that it is even possible.

If you enter into a civil partnership on, say, 1st January 2010 and you marry on January 1st 2012 the marriage subsumes the civil partnership and you are treated as having married on 1st January 2010. If you end the marriage by divorce you also dissolve the civil partnership. No further proceedings are required.
