Cohabitation – living together

Today, more couples are choosing to live together rather than get married. The concept of a common law spouse is a myth. There’s currently no separate law governing cohabitation. So if this applies to you, you’ll have to rely on the existing law – which can produce unsatisfactory results.

It makes good sense for couples to enter into a living together agreement early in their relationship. This is a good way of setting out clearly what they want to happen if their relationship breaks down, and helps to avoid disputes. We can help you draw up an agreement like this.

If you’re planning to separate – and you can’t reach an agreement – then you can call on us to start court proceedings for you.
