In addition to assisting married couples and those in civil partnerships, WBW also provide advice on co-habitation rights to those who have chosen to live together. The law in relation to married couples is quite well defined but clarifying arrangements for those who have been living together is not as straightforward.
At WBW we recognise that there are often many co-habitation issues to be resolved such as about how property and other assets should be divided as well as making arrangements for the care of children.
WBW can also assist those who have decided to live together at the start of their relationship. We do so by discussing the arrangements with you, asking about issues which in our experience can arise later. We then prepare a cohabitation agreement to record the practical arrangements both whilst living together and in the event of a relationship breaking down at a later date.
