The rights of individuals living together, as opposed to the rights of married couples, differ considerably – in particular when considering the couple’s property and financial matters.
Many individuals who live with their partner fail to adequately protect themselves and their assets, in the event that their relationship breaks down.
It is essential that cohabiting couples protect themselves and their assets with a formal agreement detailing the ownership of property and how this will be dealt with upon separation. Failing to do so can expose clients to potentially complex and costly proceedings at Court.
Our solicitors have experience in not only protecting cohabiting couples in the event of separation but also in dealing with couples who have already separated and need help with dividing the assets or finances between them where no agreement has been made during their relationship.
Our lawyers specialise in family law in Bedford and Northampton and we have expert knowledge on the law surrounding cohabitation.
