At AFG Law our finance solicitors understand that one of the main worries when a relationship ends is how to sort out the finances, especially if you own a house together or have children.
The rules are different for unmarried couples who own property, and there is no such thing as ‘common law marriage rights. If a couple has been living together, and owns a property together and the relationship breaks down the law is very strict on what can and can’t be done.
If you own a property with your ex-partner or believe you should have an interest in a property, our solicitors can help. Our solicitors can also offer advice if you are worried about the financial needs of your children, including maintenance and making sure they have somewhere to live.
Unfortunately, unlike married couples or people in a civil partnership, there is not just one piece of law that deals with all of these issues. Resolving financial arrangements when cohabitation breaks down can be complex; if you’re worried, speak to our specialist finances solicitors today
