Cohabitation lawyers for unmarried families
Our cohabitation lawyers understand that the law around cohabiting couples differs to married couples - it is important to take legal advice to understand your position
Why cohabitation lawyers are important
The laws relating to financial arrangements post-separation for unmarried couples are quite different to those which apply to married couples. Despite the frequency with which the term is used, there is no such thing as a “common law marriage” in this country and the financial claims available to unmarried partners can be comparatively restricted.
If you are planning to purchase a property with your partner or property owned by your partner is used as your family home and you are not married, you may benefit from early advice on how to ensure a fair outcome in the event that your relationship subsequently breaks down.
What can our cohabitation solicitors support you with
It is therefore important to take legal advice on your rights and obligations from experienced cohabitation lawyers, as the situation is probably not as straightforward as you might expect and the relevant law can be extremely complex. At Morr & Co, our cohabitation solicitors can help you to understand your position, following relationship breakdown, with regards to:
- Property ownership and occupancy
- Financial support for children
For further information, please contact one of our cohabitation solicitors from our family law team, who will be able to help you with the next steps.
