If you are living or co habitating with your partner and you do not have a Cohabitation Agreement in place then you could be at great financial risk. If the property, items within the property or if you have a car you share but is in one partner’s name only, the owner of the property or car could feel financially safe – but are they?

Having a cohabitation agreement in place is essential in the event of breakdown of any relationship, without this you might not have a valid claim against your partner’s property, items within the property or any vehicle you share.  Do you want to live with that uncertainty?

Cohabitation Agreements and Disputes

In our experience cohabitation is very confusing for some. There is a misconception that there are legal rights for cohabiting couples to claim financial relief after separating, without taking legal advice on cohabitation agreements unmarried couples are often very misguided and misinformed as to their legal position upon a separation.

We have huge expertise in dealing with Cohabitation Agreements. We can put together an agreement to protect matters relating to a cohabiting couple, which can come in to play in the event of a relationship separation/breakdown. We also provide expert advice where a cohabiting couple separate and do not have a specific cohabitation agreement in place to deal with their respective affairs.

Cohabitation disputes require thorough and expert legal advice in what is currently a difficult and grey area of family law and therefore it is important for couples to seek early legal advice, from a family solicitors firm such as ourselves, contact our family law team today.

Look at some alternative ways to pay for our services?

A Legal Costs Allowance from the other party

If you substantially depend on the other party for financial support, we may be able to secure an order that results in them paying for your ongoing legal fees. This is classed as part of your regular maintenance payments. Again, there are some fairly stringent criteria, so talk to us about the process involved.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

Litigation Lending

We work closely with specialised lenders who can advance money to pay your legal costs against the prospect of being repaid from a settlement. There are fairly stringent criteria. However, if you are virtually certain of winning a sizeable amount, but you have insufficient money to get from the start to the finish, it may well be an option in your circumstances.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

A ‘Sears Tooth’ Agreement

A Sears Tooth Agreement is an agreement between solicitor and client that ensures the solicitor is paid for their guidance and actions throughout the divorce without causing financial fears for the client. The solicitor and their client agree that an appropriate amount of the client’s final divorce settlement is provided to the solicitor to meet the fees.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.
