Although separating may be the last thing on your mind presently, if you are currently living with, or intend to live with a partner, it is sensible to plan for the future by creating a living together agreement (sometimes called a cohabitation agreement). In the event you and your partner decide to separate in the future, this agreement documents the financial arrangements between you. In the enent of a future separation, they can help to reduce conflict and disagreement.
We find that those who create a living together agreement whilst in a strong, loving relationship succeed in negotiating a financial agreement in a much more timely and cost effective manner than those dealing with financial matters following a complicated separation at a later date.
We understand that every couple is different and with this in mind we will draft a customised agreement that reflects your personal circumstances. The agreement will seek to protect both you and your partner and set out each of your responsibilities in the event of a separation. With the agreement in place you can move forward with more certainty and having a better sense of the financial implications that would emerge upon separation.
