There is no such thing as “common law husband” or “common law wife”.

Living with your partner does not automatically give rights similar to those who marry, regardless of how long you have been together.

Often unravelling a couple’s financial relationship can be complex, particularly where resources have been pooled.

The law does not offer automatic protection, therefore it is important that you seek advice:

  • When purchasing a property with your partner;
  • When your partner moves in to live with you or you with them;
  • When you and your partner have children; and
  • If your relationship breaks down.

We regularly draft, negotiate and advise on cohabitation agreements and separation agreements.
