Forbes Solicitors is warning cohabiting couples of the importance to obtain advice regarding entering into a Cohabitation Agreement.
Couples can seek to regulate their property and financial arrangements by entering into a properly executed Cohabitation Agreement. It is important that legal advice is sought at an early stage regarding the content of such an agreement to avoid enforcement problems at a later stage. Cohabiting couples should seek independent legal advice regarding Cohabitation Agreements and provide full and frank disclosure to support the Agreement.
Sarah Hinde, a Family Solicitor that specialises in Cohabitation Agreements comments, "Many clients make the mistake of not considering properly the regulation of theirs and their partner's finances and in the event that their relationship comes to an end, the lack of forward thinking and planning regarding this issue can often lead to cases becoming more complex, costly and acrimonious than need be."
Forbes family law team is made up of specialist family/divorce solicitors who offer advice on all areas of family law, including divorce, division of assets following marriage breakdown, cohabitee issues, ancillary relief, civil partnerships, children matters and change of name deeds.
