Cohabiting Couples

Cohabitee Solicitors In Canterbury

Relationship Breakdown

As more people are living together without getting married, our Team deal more with the issues which arise when this type of relationship breaks down. Upon a separation, couples often need to agree how to manage properly and jointly-held assets and the payment of child maintenance. Contrary to popular belief, the concept of a “common law spouse” is a myth and guidance will be needed to work through what can sometimes be a complicated situation.

If you are separating from your partner, you may well need specialist advice on your legal position. You may own a property with your partner, or have other joint assets. You may have lived in your partner’s home for a number of years and need advice on your legal standing upon the separation. We can help.

Cohabitee Agreements

We can also assist with the preparation of cohabitation agreements to assist couples in managing their relationships together, agreeing financial matters and addressing other practical considerations in the event that the relationship breaks down at a later date.
