When a couple chose to cohabit or live together and not marry, this changes how separation is dealt with as ‘common law marriage’ doesn’t exist. Our specialist team can guide you through the separation process and recommend the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution methods like Mediation and the Collaborative process. These methods are designed to reduce conflict and keep everyone in control of their individual situation.
A couple doesn’t need to be at the end of their relationship to seek advice from a specialist family lawyer. If they decide to live together and not get married, we can help with cohabitation arrangements or ‘living together’ agreements which will cover what would happen in the event the couple were to separate. For example, what would happen to the individual interests in a property, other financial support, and arrangements for children.
Our cohabitation agreements solicitors are experts in this area of law and will be sure to answer any queries you may have.
