Living Together

About The Service Meet The Team Latest Resources

At AFG Law, solicitors we understand that if you have been living with a partner and the relationship has broken down, especially if it was a lengthy relationship or you have children together, you can be left not knowing what to do next.

Our cohabitation solicitors often assist people who are worried about the future, what they need to do and what ‘rights’ they have. Our specialist, local solicitors also meet people who believe that they are ‘common law’ husband and wife and have the same rights as married couples, this isn’t true and ‘common law’ marriages don’t exist.

If you have been living together you do not have to go through any legal processes to bring your relationship to an end in the same way that married couples or civil partners do but if you entered into a cohabitation agreement, also known as a living together agreement, when you began to live together you will need to remind yourself what was agreed on separation.

If you own property together or have children together and are unsure what to do next our solicitors can help.
