The Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010 represents a major development in Irish family law. It creates the new institution of civil partnership, which attracts many of the same rights and obligations as marriage but which also differs from marriage in a number of important ways. The 2010 Act also sets up a new regime which allows ‘qualified cohabitants’ to apply for a variety of remedies upon the breakdown of the relationship or on the death of one of the parties. It also contains important provisions governing cohabitants’ agreements. This seminar will address key aspects of the 2010 Act, in relation to both cohabitation and civil partnership, helping practitioners to come to grips with the new regime governing these non-marital relationships.
