Unmarried Couples

To obtain further information on the law relating to unmarried couples, download the guide below. 

Our Private Law department can offer advice and assistance to unmarried couples. The law relating to the division of capital assets for unmarried couples is completely different to the type of orders that can be made upon the dissolution of a marriage or a civil partnership. There is a misconception about the ‘common law spouse’. Parties that have been living together, particularly for a long period of time believe that they have the same legal rights as a married couple upon their relationship breakdown. This is not the case.

For further information please download our guide or contact one of our solicitors.
