Things are going well. A time of love and romance. Will your boyfriend or girlfriend whisper those four magic words that you’ve been longing to hear…’let’s move in together!’? If they do you should consider a cohabitation agreement.
Recently Chris Bowen, one of our Family Law solicitors who is based at our head office in Macclesfield, but also travels across the local area to help clients with legal family matters, appeared on High Peak Radio to answer your questions about a variety of family law issues. He took part in High Peak Radio’s regular Legal Eagle slot and you can catch his interview and get answers to some of the most common family law issues that people face below.
Currently, there are more than 5.9 million people in the UK choosing to live together without getting married. Cohabiting couple families are the fastest growing type of household in the country and many believe that they are protected under common law marriage, however, this is not the case.
For the most part in today’s society, we are all very busy people. We want everything and we want it now. As a general rule, the public is feeling the squeeze as the cost of living continues to rise and so the temptation to grab a bargain where you can is almost insatiable, especially if it means you can grab that bargain from the comfort of your sofa at home.
There are several urban myths about “cohabitee rights”. With an ever-increasing number of couples choosing to live their lives outside of marriage, this blog covers some of the issues which cohabitees may face.
