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.
For further information about cohabitation agreements, get in touch with our family solicitors in Alconbury, Peterborough, Spalding, Nottingham or Birmingham. We can advise on each stage of the separation process, make sure that all aspects have been covered and that you are adequately protected.
