Q:How long does the dissolution take?


It largely depends on how your civil partner behaves and how busy the courts are.  As a rule of thumb the dissolution of the civil partnership takes between four and six months.  However, the civil partnership is not usually dissolved until the finances have been resolved, which often takes longer than this.
