Separation for unmarried couples
Unmarried couples often believe when they’re in a long-term relationship that they have the same rights as married couples, commonly referred to as ‘common law partners’, but this is entirely a myth. Unmarried couples do not have many rights, and when partners decide to separate, this can cause numerous issues.
Our solicitors have in-depth knowledge of the law and can advise unmarried couples on their rights following a separation, in addition to providing guidance on the steps they can make concerning shared assets and children.
