Living Together & Cohabitation Agreements
The Law on Living Together:
A couple who are cohabiting are treated differently under the law to a married couple. This difference becomes particularly significant when the relationship comes to an end. Contrary to popular belief there is no such thing as common law man and wife. If parties do separate then they will find that there is far less protection and discretion under the law compared to what would be available within a divorce.
In order to avoid the complications that can arise following the breakup of a relationship it would be wise to consider entering into a cohabitation agreement. This can be used to protect a particular asset or agree what should happen if the parties separate and thus save considerable stress and costs in disputed proceedings.

We offer fixed fee funding for cohabitation agreements, please contact a member of the team for further details.
