Many couples choose to live together rather than marry or enter a civil partnership. We can advise you about all aspects of co-habitation, as well as division of assets if the relationship fails.
The rights of couples living together do differ from those of married couples and those in civil partnerships. Because of this, it’s particularly worth getting advice at the beginning of a relationship when you plan to live together.
Pre-marital (also known as pre-nuptial) agreements are becoming more common devices for determining, before you marry, how your affairs should be addressed if the marriage ultimately fails. ‘Pre-nups’ are not automatically binding; we can advise if a pre-marital agreement would be appropriate in your case and help to prepare one.
