Cohabitants don’t enjoy the same legal rights and protection as married couples so complex issues can arise following the breakdown of a relationship with regard to finances, property and children.
The breakdown of any relationship is a painful process but if you are a cohabiting couple the complexities associated with your financial arrangements can be an added source of stress. Our specialist lawyers will take the time to understand your specific circumstances and provide expert advice tailored to your needs. We can assist with drafting separation agreements, property claims under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 and financial provision for children under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989.
If you are currently living with or contemplating moving in with your partner, then you may wish to consider a cohabitation agreement which we can draft for you.
