We have a wide range of legal experience in these “new” types of legal claims that can be made by couples who are not married but have lived together like “husband and wife” (sometimes called “common law wife or husband”) or civil partners. These claims and rights which can be made upon separation (within one year of the date of separation) or death (within six months of the date of death) can be unclear. Let us help guide you through the process from the application of the “new” legislation, to the determination of the application by the court or through negotiation.
You may prefer to try and protect your assets or property from cohabitation claims, and we can help you with an appropriate “Cohabitation” Agreement or simply clarify your rights and obligations in law.
Contact Susan or Sally to find out they can help you.
Many thanks to you and your staff for all the help and support during this difficult time. It was greatly appreciated
