Unfortunately as an unmarried couple, both parties do not have some of the rights as married couples. Financially this can be a serious problem, as the party with the most assets can leave the relationship and take everything they have, leaving the other party sometimes with nothing.
One way of helping to prevent this is through a cohabitation agreement which Hattons Solicitors can give advice on setting up, covering you financially and regarding contact with children, should you break up in the future.
If the relationship has already broken down, we can advise on how to deal with disputes that can arise when the relationship breaks down.
Some of these issues include:
