Cohabitation

Our expert family lawyers specialise in advising on the issues arising when unmarried couples choose to separate.

The law for unmarried couples is very different and there is no such thing as a "common law spouse". With this in mind, we provide tailored advice in relation to complex financial circumstances and we draw on the expertise of our tax and property colleagues when needed.

We can advise in relation to the financial issues that arise for unmarried couples on separation, including resolving disputes regarding properties and other joint assets, and preparing separation agreements.

Our expert team includes family mediators and collaborative law specialists and where appropriate we will help clients resolve disputes using a variety of out of court settlement options.
