Good News For Same Sex Couples

The government has confirmed that any couples who have their civil partnership converted to same-sex marriages will have the marriage certificates backdated to the date of registration of the civil partnership.

This means that couples will not receive a conversion certificate as had been previously suggested (and to a large extent what same sex couples wished for).

Couples in England and Wales will be able to convert their civil partnerships to marriages from 10th December 2014.

This information provided in this article is not intended to constitute legal advice and each relationship breakdown requires careful consideration in our view by a fully qualified Solicitor before decisions are made and before you embark on a certain course of action.
