Cohabitation

“The ‘outstanding, pragmatic and highly skilled’ Wayne Lynn focuses on cohabitation agreements and pre-and-post-nuptial agreements.”

Legal 500

Statistics show that cohabiting couples are also far more likely to separate than those who are married.

Although four out of five people believe that cohabiting couples have the same rights as married couples, this is not true – and there is no such thing as a “common law” wife or husband.

The only way cohabiting couples can avoid the legal minefield should they separate is to have a cohabitation agreement.

A cohabitation agreement gives cohabiting couples - or couples who are considering living together - the opportunity to clarify how they intend to own property and how they would deal with their financial affairs if they were to separate.

We have specialists who can provide pragmatic and practical advice in this complex area of family law.
