Cohabitation Disputes & Separation

At present, the law in England and Wales does not give strong protection to unmarried couples. In order to minimise your risk, consideration should be given to how you legally hold your joint assets.

Doing so at the beginning of the relationship or prior to purchasing a joint asset can avoid difficulties should a separation or dispute occur.

Our specialist dispute resolution team are able to advise you as to the best method of protection whilst living together and following any separation. We can discuss Declarations of Trust, Living Together Agreements, Equitable Accounting and Trusts of Land with you and help you to achieve the best and most workable solution.

Separation of unmarried couples with children can lead to applications for maintenance and in some circumstances property adjustments. We can discuss these further should this apply to you.

We understand disputes with loved ones are uncomfortable, stressful experiences and A City Law Firm prides itself on its sensitive and skilled approach. We will always aim to engage dispute resolution tactics where possible to resolve matters amicably.
