It is increasingly common for couples to live together without getting married or entering into a civil partnership. Many people still believe that living with a partner for a certain amount of time would give you the same rights as married or civil partnership couples when you separate, however this is not the case.
If a cohabiting couple separates, there are often complex arrangements to consider and resolve, and our experts can help guide you through this.
For unmarried couples who are about to start living together, we can also advise about the steps to take that can offer the best possible future protection.

Increasingly, couples are choosing to enter into pre-nuptial agreements (before marriage) and post-nuptial agreements (during a marriage) to protect assets in the event of a future relationship breakdown. Greater recognition has been given to nuptial agreements within the law in England and Wales over recent years. Our team has extensive experience in advising individuals and their families on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements – often as part of their wider wealth planning objectives.
