Cohabitation Agreement Solicitors

Many unmarried couples mistakenly believe that they become “common law” spouses if they have lived together for a period of time and obtain rights similar to those of a married couple. However, this is not the case. When it comes to property, finance, and children, there are significant differences between the legal rights of married and unmarried couples.

If you live with a partner and are unmarried, a cohabitation agreement will protect your interests if the worst should happen.

Draft a cohabitation agreement for unmarried couples with our expert solicitors

Without the legal provisions of a marriage or civil partnership, it can be difficult to determine how a couple’s estate will be divided if they separate, particularly if a property is jointly owned or there are children involved. In such cases, there is often no legal recourse when a couple cannot agree.

A cohabitation agreement is an easy, legally binding way to set out your intentions when moving in with a partner. This shouldn’t be viewed as a negative or cynical course of action. It is a straightforward way to ensure decisions are made fairly and objectively and to avoid further emotional turmoil if your relationship breaks down.

Our specialist Family Law solicitors can assist with the drafting of a cohabitation agreement. We can help you to outline what will happen to a property in the event of a separation, how significant assets are to be divided, and can also set out provisions for any children.
