Civil Partnership Separation

I am trying to figure out how to formalise the separation of a civil partnership obtained abroad. Both of us have lived in Zurich for more than 1 year so I believe the Zurich courts have jurisdiction.

  1. I don't know whether it is divorce or dissolution.
  2. How much each would cost to draw up with a lawyer.
  3. Whether my partner can return to her home country after we file the papers or if she must be here for the judgement.
  4. How many hours something like this would cost in lawyer fees.
  5. Whether if we don't have a pre marital agreement, can we make one now and what is the cost? in order to avoid the swiss law of 50:50.

Re: Civil Partnership Separation

Here is Pink Cross, a gay rights organisation.
Scroll down to «Trennung» (Separation) and «Scheidung» (Divorce).

Best to run it through both «google translate» and «deepl», as they tend to give slightly different machine translation results.

See also, in English: https://www.ch.ch/en/dissolving-regi...l-partnership/

and, also in English, information about the possible effects on permits.

All the best as you try to settle things.
