When unmarried couples choose to live together, they are often unaware that the law, upon separation, does not provide for them financially in the same way that it does for married couples and civil partners. What is frequently referred to as "common law marriage" is in reality, a myth.
By entering into a Cohabitation Agreement, an unmarried partner can seek to create legal obligations which then afford both parties financial protection in the unfortunate event of separation.
If you want more advice about Cohabitation Agreements, please feel free to speak to one of our Family Lawyers by using the number at the top of the page. Alternatively, you can email us.
