Separation Agreements for unmarried couples
Family Legal Solicitors can help r unmarried separating couples to regulate the terms of their separation by way of a separation agreement, or if matters can't be agreed by pursuing a claim through court.
A Separation can often be one of the most traumatic and stressful periods of your life. Let us take the stress out of the situation of you.
Unmarried couples, or cohabitants, don't have the same legal rights as married couples, unless they are same-sex couples who have registered a civil partnership. Contrary to popular opinion there is no such thing as a common law husband or wife.
As with any separation, the decisions to be made are difficult and there are often issues for unmarried or unregistered couples regarding property and children that need to be resolved.
For unmarried couples who wish to separate, we can advise you on the legal implications of your separation and how best to resolve financial matters. This is a specialist area of law and we strongly suggest you seek legal advice before agreeing a financial settlement with the other party.
Solicitor prepared Separation Agreements
For unmarried couples wishing to separate, it is worthwhile considering whether to record any agreement reached over the division of assets and arrangements for any children into a Separation Agreement. Such an agreement will record who is to have what and what the parties' responsibilities are. It can be particularly useful where one party intends to remain in jointly owned property for some time after the other party has moved out. If matters can be agreed we can help you prepare a Separation Agreement for an agreed fixed fee.
