It is increasingly common for couples to live together without getting married or entering into a civil partnership. Many people believe that living with a partner for a certain amount of time would give you the same rights as married couples when you separate, however this is not the case.

If a cohabiting couple separates, there can often be complex arrangements to consider and resolve.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Nuptial agreements are often considered and put into place when one or both parties to the marriage already has a significant level of assets. Our team has extensive experience in advising individuals, couples and families on prenuptial and postnuptial agreements – often as part of wider wealth planning.
