Solicitors for cohabitation
When things break apart for cohabiting couples, it’s all too easy to take a wrong turn because the track is less defined. Our legal experts and cohabitation lawyers will make sure you take the right direction.
Unmarried couples have fewer legal rights, and if their relationship breakdowns there are very different legal implications.
Assets such as the family home are not divided as they may be in a divorce. Property disputes have to rely on trust and land law. And there is no automatic entitlement to financial, capital, spousal maintenance, or pension claims.
There are laws concerning many children, and there is no legal distinction between married and unmarried parents when deciding who the children should live with and any maintenance.
However, there are ways you can protect yourself and action you can take if your relationship breakdowns and our legal experts will help you get in the right direction.
We support many unmarried couples to resolve their differences and put in place fair settlements that ensure the family can move forward in life in a position of security.
