Living Together Agreements
Unmarried couples and financial agreements
Financial sacrifices made during your relationship as cohabitants, are not taken into account by the courts if the relationship breaks down.
When you decide to invest in a property or have children as an unmarried couple, it is important that you prepare for the possibility that it may not last forever, and that it is a good idea to seek legal advice from a solicitor in order to make sure that what you both individually invest into your relationship is compensated if it ends.
At the Worcester Family Law Practice, we can talk you through all the things to consider under cohabitation. We will make sure that your decision to invest in your relationship combined with our legal advice and support, doesn’t have to mean that you are left with financial uncertainty.
Cohabitation and Common-law marriage
A Living Together Agreement can help you avoid unnecessary heartache should you decide to go your separate ways. It can also ensure that in the tragic event of a death, the partner left behind is financially protected and sufficiently equipped to avoid financial discomfort as a result of losing their loved one.
