Cohabiting couples

Cohabitation agreements

Safeguarding your finances – cohabitation agreements

Despite popular belief, there is no such thing as a “common law marriage”. A couple who cohabit do not share the same legal rights as those who are married or in a civil partnership.

Often, however, a couple who live or have lived together will have made joint investments, such as buying a property or opening a joint bank account. The division of these assets will need to be addressed should the couple separate.

How can we help?

If you have recently ended, or are considering ending a cohabiting relationship, please contact us.   We can advise on each stage of the separation process, make sure that all aspects have been covered and that you are adequately protected.
