Unmarried Couples/Cohabitee Disputes

When things break apart for cohabiting couples, it is easy to become overwhelmed and not know what your rights are. However, the family team is here to guide you through it.

The relationship breakdown of unmarried couples holds different implications. Unlike married couples, you are not automatically entitled to financial support, pension claims or spousal maintenance. When it comes to properties such as the family home, disputes arising from such matters will have to rely on Trust of Land and Appointments of Trustees Act 1996.

When it comes to children, our family team can support you through the process by advising you with confidence on what the next step should be.
