Cohabitation Agreements and Disputes

Cohabitation is where an unmarried couple live together in a long term relationship but do not marry.

There is a misconception that there are legal rights for cohabiting couples to claim financial relief after separating and unmarried couples are often very misguided and misinformed as to their legal position upon separation.

We have expertise in dealing with cohabitation agreements which can be put in place to protect matters relating to a cohabiting couple in the event of a separation/breakdown.  We also provide expert advice where a cohabiting couple separate and do not have a specific agreement to deal with their respective affairs.

Cohabitation disputes require thorough and expert advice in what is currently a difficult and grey area of law and therefore it is important for couples to seek early legal advice.  Call our expert family law team today on 0191 281 6151.
