Civil Partnership Insurance

Civil Partnership Insurance may sound like a different product, but it is essentially identical to standard wedding insurance in all but name.

Since a Civil Partnership enters same-sex couples into an equivalent state of marriage, they then hold legal status to be known as each other's civil partner, and have the same rights as any opposite sex couple who have been married.

For the purposes of Wedding Insurance, only the name differs, as the insurance will still cover both a ceremony and a reception, alongside cancellation cover, photography cover, and all other sections applicable to the chosen Insurance Provider.

Civil partnerships in the UK fall under the Civil Partnership Act of 2004. Civil partners are entitled to the same property rights as married opposite-sex couples, and are also eligible for the same exemptions on pension benefits, social security and inheritance tax.

Civil partners also can apply for parental responsibility for their partner's children, and become liable for reasonable maintenance of one's partner and their children.

If a civil partnership breaks down, there is a formal process for dissolving partnerships akin to divorce.

There are some legal restrictions for Civil Partnerships;

Each partner must be resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland for at least seven days immediately preceding the giving of notice and there will normally be a fifteen day waiting period after notice has been given. In Scotland, however, there is no minimum residence restriction.

Out of our panel of eight Insurance Providers, all eight of them will cover Civil Partnership ceremonies.
