SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
A cohabitation agreement is a legal document that outlines the rights and responsibilities of cohabiting couples. This agreement is usually drawn up when two people move in together, and outlines issues such as property rights, financial arrangements, and how assets will be divided in the event of a break-up. A cohabitation agreement can provide important protection for both partners, especially in the event of a separation.
Cohabitation is a living arrangement in which two people live together as partners, but are not legally married. This form of partnership is becoming increasingly common and is widely recognised by society. However, cohabiting couples do not enjoy the same legal protection and rights as married couples.
Here at Forbes we have extensive experience in advising clients in relation to matters concerning their ongoing relationships. Cohabitants and unmarried couples do not have the same rights as married couples. Agreements can be put in place to protect shared assets and save financial heartache and emotional stress further down the line should their relationship come to an end.
Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements can be put in place for couples with greater assets who do marry, to safeguard both parties from costly legal battles and prevent unnecessary emotional and financial worry should the marriage breakdown.
We tailor all our services to ensure the most personal and cost effective solution and our friendly expert advisors will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
