Living Together

More couples are choosing to live together and share their lives without getting married. And whilst emotionally, you may feel no different to a married couple; under the law, couples that live together without getting married do not share the same legal rights as those who marry. This can make things difficult if the relationship breaks down in the future particularly in regard to finance and property. And if children are involved, it’s important to protect their future too.

So, even if splitting up is the last thing on your mind right now, it is sensible to plan for the future by creating a living together agreement (sometimes called a cohabitation agreement). This will give you the peace of mind that if your relationship changes in the future, both people will be legally protected. You will know where you stand and if the worst happens and your relationship does break down, the legal implications will be one less thing to worry about.

We have helped lots of couples create living together agreements. Many people find that it is much easier to form this agreement whilst in a strong, loving relationship – rather than dealing with the consequences of a complicated break up at a later date.

We understand that every couple is different, so we will take the time to get to know you so that we can draft an agreement that reflects your own circumstances. It will protect both people and detail your responsibilities in the event of a break up. With the agreement in place, you can get on with your life with the peace of mind that every eventuality is planned for.

At Amphlett Lissimore, we explain everything in plain and simple terms. We answer any questions you may have and make the process easy to understand. We also offer free, initial over-the-phone advice, and will explain the costs and timescales involved up front so that you always know what to expect.
