An Introduction to Cohabitation

When a couple live together without entering into marriage or a civil partnership, they are generally known as Cohabitees. Cohabitation primarily relates to couples who are in an intimate relationship on a permanent or long-term basis.

It is possible to have a Cohabitation Agreement, similar to a pre-marital agreement which seeks to protect each Partner's assets in the event of the relationship ending. The Court can take this into account if any dispute arises but does not have to.

If the relationship breaks down, the law relating to how any financial issues are decided between them is very different to divorce law - and can be a complex area to deal with. At JLS Solicitors we can help guide you through this potential minefield in a non-confrontational way and look towards finding solutions to the issues that arise.
