When you start a new relationship, contemplating splitting up is not something you will want to think about. However, sadly not all relationships are successful and it is wise to plan for the worst whilst hoping for the best.

It is important to bear in mind that there are different legal consequences if a couple remain unmarried and live together rather than getting married. The idea of “common law husband and wife” is a myth. It is essential to know that when a couple break-up, the laws affecting married and unmarried couples are significantly different when it comes to financial matters.

Six out of every ten couples who live together believe that they have the same financial protection as married couples if they split up. They don’t! The Family Team can help you consider your legal options and discuss how you might benefit from a written agreement:

  • Cohabitation Agreement – this is for an unmarried couple and can be signed before or after you start living together

 

  • Pre-Nuptial or Post-Nupital Agreement – this is for a married couple and can be signed before or after your marriage

 

Contact the Family Team on 01202 875646 for a free telephone consultation about your circumstances and to ask any questions.
