Cohabitation & Separation

EXPERIENCED, TRUSTED, COST-EFFECTIVE

Many couples falsely believe that, if they live together, they have legal rights similar to married couples or those in a civil partnership. In many cases, the term 'common law marriage' is used in reference to these perceived rights. In reality, cohabiting couples do not gain automatic rights to property or assets if they separate, or if one party to the couple passes away. Our family and divorce solicitors can provide guidance and advice to cohabiting couples who wish to put legally binding agreements in place to protect their position should their relationship come to an end.  We can also advise you on your options if you separate without having an agreement in place.

Get in touch with us today on 0208 866 6464 or fill out our online enquiry form.

What are cohabitation agreements?

For cohabiting couples, a cohabitation agreement can be used to set out and record a number of things. They can be used to determine how your finances will be managed while you and your partner are together, as well as establishing how assets will be shared should you separate. If you have children, a cohabitation agreement can be used to put in place financial and residence arrangements should your relationship come to an end whilst your children are still dependants.

Cohabitation agreements are not legally binding, but the courts will generally follow the agreement set out in a formal document provided it is appropriately drafted..  Our family and divorce law team can assist you in drawing up an agreement on your behalf, or considering and advising upon an agreement drawn up by your partner’s lawyers.
