Couples are increasingly choosing to cohabit rather than entering into marriage or a civil partnership. It is estimated that cohabiting heterosexual couples now make up 14% of all partnerships compared to just 5% in 1986.
With over 30 years’ experience providing accredited guidance matched with high quality customer service, our cohabitation solicitors can help you find resolution in a range of cohabitation issues including cohabitation agreements, disputes, property issues and separation agreements.
We would advise any couple who is contemplating living together to consider entering into a cohabitation agreement, which is a document setting out the agreements between the parties on a range of issues.
It is important for both parties to obtain independent legal advice before entering into a cohabitation agreement as it is legally binding.
In the case of a dispute, our team at Carr & Co can guide you through the process. We always advise trying to settle disputes out of court, and can provide mediation and other negotiation services as well as draw up separation agreements. However, if an agreement cannot be reached relating to either property or children, we can act for you in applying to the courts and providing representation.
To arrange a discussion at your convenience with a cohabitation solicitor please do not hesitate to contact us.
