Studies show that in England, one in eight adults is unmarried and living with partner. If you are cohabiting meaning you are in relationship with your partner and are not married, there is no common law husband or wife. Coventry Solicitors can advise you regarding your right in case of unmarried dispute. The solicitor can offer to draw ‘Cohabitant couples, living together’ agreement mentioning their financial arrangement and terms and clause in event of break up. The UK law does not provide sufficient legal protection for cohabitants. Even if you have cohabited with your partner for more than 20 years but in the event of separation, your rights will be still less than the divorced married couple who has married for even less than 5 years. It does not matter, how long you have cohabited with your partner, you do not have any rights over your partner’s income as per the law. Always prefer Accredited Law Firm like YourCoventry Solicitors LLP.
