The Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 has paved the way for same sex couples to now formalise their relationship and be entitled to the same rights in respect of finances, property, inheritance tax, social security, pension benefits, parental responsibility, full life insurance recognition and next of kin rights etc.
 
A pre-civil partnership agreement is, like a prenuptial agreement, not binding and can’t stop the other party making a claim. That said, it can be influential when assessing how assets and income should be divided in the event that your relationship breaks down. The Courts are certainly starting to take pre-marital agreements more seriously and in recent cases it appears that there is an acknowledgement to the fact that when agreements are entered by two intelligent adults, with full financial disclosure, stating their intentions, they should be given weight.
