Is it 50/50 regardless of what happened pre-civil partnership?

I purchased a flat a couple of months before our civil partnership - I saved up for 10 years for that deposit.

The mortgage has only ever been in my name and I've been the only one working full-time for the past 8 years.

I want to apply for a dissolution and my ex-partner has mentioned a few times that half the property is hers which I don't feel it's fair. Would 50/50 still be the starting point under the law?

Hi Karen, whether or not a 50/50 split is fair, depends on several factors. If you have a pre-registration agreement ringfencing any pre-civil partnership assets, then this may impact a partner's entitlement, however, this will also depend on whether both partner's needs are met as well as other factors.
