What is Cohabitation?

Cohabitation has caused some confusion over the years. Cohabitation is not the same as marriage and is not the same as a civil partnership. Even after cohabiting for a lengthy period of time you will not have the same rights as a couple in a marriage or in a civil partnership. Cohabitation is generally defined as living together as a couple without being married or in a civil partnership.

The most effective way to protect your rights in relation to property and finance is to enter into a cohabitation agreement particularly if marriage or a civil partnership is not right for you.

What is a Cohabitation Agreement?

A cohabitation agreement is an agreement between a couple who are living together or planning to live together. The purpose of a cohabitation agreement is to protect the interests of both partners. It can state the rights each partner has to property, the financial responsibilities of each partner and the parental responsibility for any children. It can also state what happens to property and joint bank accounts in the event that the relationship ends or if either one of you dies.

A cohabitation agreement can prevent future disputes from occurring should the relationship end and thus provide some clarity at a time that could be potentially stressful for everyone involved. At Family Law Sheffield our team of expert solicitors will work tirelessly to help you create a cohabitation agreement tailored to the needs of you and your partner and thus provide you with some certainty and reassurance going forward.
