Setting up a home together
There is no such thing in law as “Common Law Husband” or “Common Law Wife”. However, there are steps you can take to ensure the financial wellbeing of your family even if you are not married. We can explain to you the current state of affairs and the legal implications of cohabiting with your partner.
The end of the relationship
Unlike married couples, when a cohabiting couple’s relationship ends, there is no legal provision for maintenance or the fair distribution of property. We can advise you about the law in this area and how you can protect your position should your relationship end.
