If you’re in a long-term, same-sex relationship, it might be worth considering civil partnership to legally protect your loved one should either of you die.
The Civil Partnership Act, which came into effect in 2005, allows same-sex couples to obtain legal recognition of their relationship. Couples that form a civil partnership have the same legal status as married couples, which entitles them to the same treatment on a range of issues.
If you’re caring for someone suffering from a long-term condition, there may come a time when you will need to make decisions on their behalf and it may be helpful to discuss power of attorney.
