Couples who live together without marrying do not enjoy the same legal protection as those who do. We can help you to avoid complications should the relationship break down, by drafting cohabitation agreements and guiding you through the separation process.
In recent years, couples living together without getting married have formed the UK's fastest-growing family-type. Yet in contrast to their married counterparts, cohabiting couples still do not benefit from statutory rights when their relationship breaks down.Any claims have to be determined by reference to complex and esoteric principles of trust and property law, unless there are children, in which case the couple may have limited financial claims on behalf of their dependents. We have considerable experience in this area.
If you are not married or in a civil partnership, your future security could be at risk if your relationship falters.
Michael Gouriet and Joanna Lazarus explain the issues and what you can do to protect yourself.
